Publisher Note

The Beginning The End is a collection of quotes taken from 212 classic and b-fiction books, and involves writing one book with two parts: The Beginning and The End. The two parts meet in the middle. I collected two quotes per book: the first sentence (The Beginning) and the last sentence of the book (The End).
The Beginning is a collage of sorts, and through the symmetry The End became a story of coincidence.
Sometimes I change the quotes minimally: I remove the proper names, gender and the third person tense and turn them into the first person, as an appropriation act.
