Teaser Tuesday - 25 April



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!
The nose was immense, a shapeless heap of fleshy protuberances. Hair unlike human hair sprouted upon it and upon his cheeks together with fungus-like stains and excrescences.
No, not as threatened in a comment I just made on last week's teaser, fantasy but a very real observance, Iris Murdoch contemplates ageing in Bruno's Dream. This is a re-read - I've read most of her works but not returned to them for quite a few years. I've decided to sample a few - unfortunately with this one I can remember the ending...
How many of Murdoch's books feature ex-nuns? - must be a few or are they just the ones I remember!!
