“Open the book to page ninety-nine and read, and the quality of the whole will be revealed to you” –said Ford Madox Ford.
Following this maxim, Marshal Zeringue has created a very entertaining blog, “The Page 99 Test,” in which he asks authors to comment on page 99 of their book and publishes the results. He asked me to take the test and I did.
It turned out page 99 was set in a cemetery.
You can read the results here.
