Teaser Tuesday - Sep 22

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!

from Salley Vickers Where three roads meet a re-telling of the Oedipus story to a dying Sigmund Freud. Trivium (for those that know Stravinsky) hovered over the spectral retelling.
