Teaser Tuesday 2

9 February 2010

This is how it works:

  • 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 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!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

It’s We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oates. I finished it at teatime after I came home from work (earlier than I would have done if I hadn’t had it to finish, I suspect), but I was still reading it on Tuesday, so it’ll do:

Before the luckless Austin Weidman the ‘date’ arrived in his dad’s car to take her away. Strawberries ‘n’ cream! Dad teased, snapping the shots. But of course he was proud, how could he not be proud. (p. 84)
