Yesterday's line? If you were struck by the tone, and understood that the voice was that of a sullen teen, you probably guessed it was Holden Caulfield, speaking the first line of J.D. Salinger's The Catcher In The Rye.
First lines can provoke, and they can even confuse. Try this famous first line:
"It was a queer, sultry summer, the summer they electrocuted the Rosenbergs, and I didn't know what I was doing in New York."
