Thanks!
I forgot a few.

In college I also read Metamorphosis and Oedipus.


New opening line:

If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.

It sounded llike David Copperfield, until the "crap" part--- I don't think Dickens ever mentioned crap in a book.

I forgot so much about that book. Can't believe it's been 20 years since I read it.

"The stranger came early in February, one wintry day, through a biting wind and a driving snow, the last snowfall of the year, over the down, walking as it seemed from Bramblehurst railway station, and carrying a little black portmanteau in his thickly gloved hand."
