Teaser Tuesday - 8 September



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!
'Do they miaow now?' I asked, meaning only to show a friendly interest. Sometimes, I admit, I'm quite pleased with myself for remembering the details of my humbler friends' lives. It's an empathetic gift that many politicians I'm sure would trade a limb for.
Typed, very carefully, from Lynne Truss's String and Air, her contribution to a book of short stories edited by Jeanette Winterson for Glyndebourne which take liberties with various opera plots (that one was The Turn of the Screw. The book is called Midsummer Nights - great fun if you enjoy both short stories and opera! I was very tempted to get a random quote from Colm Toíbín The Pearl Fishers but the Truss pipped it!
