Teaser Tuesday – October 5th 2010

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

Grab your current read.

Open to a random page.

Share two “teaser” sentences, from somewhere on that page.

Be careful not to share “spoiler” sentences, that give away too much about the book.

Remember to share the title and author too.

Head on over to ‘should be reading’ and leave a link to your post, so that others can share it.

My “teaser” for Tuesday 5th October 2010:

‘The Girls’ by Lori Lansens

Page 156

“I listened to my uncle sniff, and exhale, and I knew he was crying, as men do, with hush and humiliation”

“There’s the photograph of Ruby in her oversize navy blouse (which she wore in solidarity) and me in my stretched black pants and lime-green sweater set (from the plus-size department rather than maternity) hugging Nonna at her place on New Year’s Day”

I am about half way through this book and so far it has been a profoundly moving and emotional read.

Update October 16th 2010 – Full synopsis, author biography and my personal thoughts about this book, are now available, here.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • Hi Alice Audrey,

    Do you know, I had never given much thought to men crying before, but now you point it out, I can see how profound that statement really is.

    Thanks for bringing that to my attention.

    Your teaser lines are great, they give nothing away!
