Teaser Tuesday - 23 June

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!
He mentioned the 'thought police', speculated about 'hyper-dimensional tunnels' and went on gabbling in the way he used to in his poems. The letter ended with the enigmatic sentence: 'all who know are saved'.
from Roberto Bolaño's Last Evenings on Earth short stories about short stories, or poets or other works of literature... but fascinating. I'm reading this as part of the Taks a Chance challenge..
Wanted to cite another section from Rowan's Rule which I teased about two weeks ago:
'I now have a remarkable collection of letters which say, 'Every Christian I speak to, and most people I know outside the Church, agree that...' - whatever view it is the writer holds. And these views are dramatically incompatible. It's hard to avoid concluding that most of us speak and listen mostly to those who share our world [view?], and assume it is indeed the natural one to belong to.'
for the way in which we close in our personal views.

They're both intriguing, but I like the second one best! Excellent teasers.

My own teaser is at Bookishgal.
