Teaser Tuesday - 22 Sept



Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
'Who lives there?' I asked Sangye.
One nun.' He screwed up his face and grinned. 'But now not a nun because she make a baby.'
'Who was the father?'
'One monk.'
From Bruce Chatwin's (yes Chatwin for a second week!) 'What am I doing here'. A sort of combined anthology of travel stories, ancedotes and biographies.

Hahah! That's great. Love the dichotomy - of the expected, the conceptual - and then the practical reality. Nice teaser!

Nice teaser. Haven't read anything by Chatwin, but my husband is a big fan and keeps recommending him. This one sounds like it might be a good starting place.
