Teaser Tuesday for June 7th 2011

Teaser Tuesday for June 7th 2011

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 (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)

Share the author and perhaps a link to the book so that folks can add it to their own TBR lists.

Don't forget to pop over to the host site below.
My Teaser this week: comes from a book I am so delighted to own.

Damn this is good writing. I recognized it as such the first time I read a few chapters. yet now with time to spare I have found so much more to enjoy...from the first sentence, Cheryl being angular, and the marvelous geometric usages sharp, cubed, colors of black and red, crisp. The characterizations of every player in this are superbly crafted.
A joy to read and reread. 

Teaser from page: 3
It's over four years since she last lived in London, south of the river. That's why she stood
outside Camden Town tube, before her interview, waving her photocopied map at passers-by
who said, Sorry, I'm only a visitor too; or Sorry, I speak not much English. That's the
moment she might have turned back, because she felt this little shiver. Not just the December
wind, but the draughty space all around her where family have always been, crowding her
out. Family, kids, clutter.


  1. Lovely teaser. I will need to look into this one further. My TT:

  2. A wonderful blog that deserves more recognision, therefore you'll get this little present from me:

  3. Stella! Thank you so very much. This is my first award and i can't tell you just how much it means to me that you took the time and made the effort to do this. It makes all the hard work so worthwhile.
