Teaser Tuesday 5
2 March 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!
This time it’s How to Paint a Dead Man by Sarah Hall. I’m not sure what I think: I’ve not engaged with at least two of the four voices yet, which will make it a bit of a slog if it keeps on like this, but that’s not very teaser-y. Sorry, book.
You’ve begun to eat meat again after a decade of being vegetarian. You eat it rare, savouring the wet iron on your tongue. Venison. Liver. (p. 34)
