HENRY SYDNOR HARRISON
American journalist, novelist and social critic
(1880 - 1930)
  CHECK READING LIST (3)  

Being an author actually at work, and not an author being photographed at work by a lady admirer, he did not gaze large-eyed at a poppy in a crystal vase, one hand lightly touching his forehead, the other tossing off page after page in high godlike frenzy.
      - Angela's Business (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]

It was a five of a November afternoon, crisp and sharp, and already running into dusk. Down the street came a girl and a dog, rather a small girl and quite a behemothian dog. If she had been a shade smaller, or he a shade more behemothian, the thing would have approached a parody on one's settled idea of a girl and a dog. She had enough height to save that, but it was the narrowest sort of squeak.
      - Queed (ch. 1) [Books (First Lines)]

V. Vivian, M.D., by the paint upon his window, dwelt in the Dabney House; Mr. Heth--pronounced Heath if you value his wife's good opinion--dwelt in the House of his cognomen. Between the two lay a scant mile of city streets. But then this happened to be the particular mile which traversed, while of course it could not span, the Great Gulf fixed.
      - V.V.'s Eyes (ch. 1) [Books (First Lines)]
