This is what the opening of my essay would be like. My thesis based on an epic book called praying for sheetrock.
Praying for Sheet rock is the inverse of a history book. An epic account of history by its atoms and intimate details. The epicenter of this story is McIntosh county and how its sherrif, Tom Poppell ran it with an iron fist and the mis-justice as well as civil rights issues that laid within. The attention to minute details explains in of itself the role people in this story played.
Oh my god writers block, off to find my muse, I will possibly do this.
