Teaser Tuesday - June 2

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!
On another occasion, Sunday morning, and grandfather being in bed, a detective disguised as a poor working man that was almost dying for a drink, wheedled the old man's daughter to sell him liquor over the back wall - the result being a summons for supplying drink during closed hours, followed by a heavy fine, which was at once paid. The third time was at my trial with five other desperadoes, as described in the preceding chapter.
A final teaser from W H Davies 'The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp' - our BATS (book group) of last month. I generally enjoyed this it had some longeurs and some points where you felt you were reading a tale about a totally different person. I hadn't read this before but I remember a school friend praising it.
