“It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.” — George Orwell, 1984.

What an opening sentence, you know right away that you are in for an unusual ride. As I work on the final edits for my novel, I have been taking long walks among the gorgeousness of fall and taking deep dives into old favorites. Right now, that favorite is 1984.
