Teaser Tuesday - Apr 19

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!
"Those who are on the bottom always want to be on top, those who are on top want to stay on top, and one way or another they always reach the point where they're kicking and spitting at each other."
"That's exactly why problems should be resolved before violence breaks out."
From The Story of a New Name Elena Ferrante. Our book group book for the month I'm currently enjoying this - I've not read the first book in the series but I didn't find that an obstacle. We've gone from one pseudonymous novel (The Cuckoo's Calling) to another. It's not a short novel but easy to read and carries you with it, the way she (the writer) inhabits each moment makes the growing up that the characters undergo fascinating. Here'a Guardian article about her.
