My Book Beginnings is taken from THIS TENDER LAND by William Kent Krueger:

"Albert name the rat.  He called it Faria.

It wa an old creature, a mottle of gray and white fur.  Almost always it kept to the edges o the tiny cell.....where I'd put a few crumbs of the hard biscuit that had been my meal."


  1. This book is outstanding.

    Have you read it?

  2. I haven't read this one, but you are the second person I know who has thought it was outstanding.

    1. It has such beautiful writing and lovable, authentic characters.

      His books are always very good.

      Thanks for commenting, Literary Feline.
