Tales From The Town #56: The Very First Page Of The Book

Tina loved the very first page of a book. After the cover, before the title, before any review quotes or bibliographies, author’s bios, copyright information, there it was, that first page of the book, blank and unsullied and pristine.

It wasn’t even a page by most people’s reckoning. Just the back of the cover, neither in the book nor out. A nul page, anti content.

There was so much potential in the emptiness. Tina trembled with anticipation. Anything could happen from here.
