WILLIAM JOHN LOCKE
British novelist
(1863 - 1930)
  CHECK READING LIST (5)  

I received a letter the day before yesterday from my old friend Jaffery Chayne, which has inspired me to write the following account of that dear, bull-headed, Pantagruelian being. I must say that I have been egged on to do so by my wife, of whom hereafter.
      - Jaffery (ch. 1) [Books (First Lines)]

"I love Nunsmere," said the Literary Man from London. "It is a spot where faded lives are laid away in lavender."
      - Septimus (ch. 1) [Books (First Lines)]

I met Renniker the other day at the club. He is a man who knows everything--from the method of trimming a puppy's tail for a dog-show, without being disqualified, to the innermost workings of the mind of every European potentate. If I want information on any subject under heaven I ask Renniker.
      - Simon the Jester (ch. I)
        [Books (First Lines)]

Paul Kegworthy lived with his mother, Mrs. Button, his stepfather, Mr. Button, and six little Buttons, his half brothers and sisters. His was not an ideal home; it consisted in a bedroom, a kitchen and a scullery in a grimy little house in a grimy street made up of rows of exactly similar grimy little houses, and forming one of a hundred similar streets in a northern manufacturing town. Mr. and Mrs. Button worked in a factory and took in as lodgers grimy single men who also worked in factories. They were not a model couple; they were rather, in fact, the scandal of Budge Street, which did not itself enjoy, in Bludston, a reputation for holiness.
      - The Fortunate Youth (ch. 1)
        [Books (First Lines)]

"Lady Fenimore's compliments, sir, and will you be so kind as to step round to Sir Anthony at once?"
      - The Red Planet (ch. I)
        [Books (First Lines)]
