First Sentence Friday

“The scarecrow that we found lashed to the pin oak in Friendship Park, New Jersey, was thousands of miles away from the yellow atolls of corn where you might expect to find a farmer’s doll.”

from “The Graveless Doll of Eric Mutis” by Karen Russell from her short story collection Vampires in the Lemon Grove (I picked the last story instead because it had a much more interesting first sentence)
