Teaser Tuesday 10

6 April 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!

Magical cities on real-world Earth again (and anthropologists in trouble) this week: Lisa Goldstein’s Tourists.

Mitchell and Dr. Wiley talked about university politics during dinner. Dr. Wiley had been in the biology department. Casey felt enormously glad to hear it; she would hate to think that someone with his attitude towards the people of Amaz could be an anthropologist. (p. 52)

  15. Celia Says:

    Interesting…makes me wonder what’s so very different in outlooks between an anthropologist and a biologist. Nice teaser!

    And thank you for stopping by my blog yesterday!

  16. @ Celia – I think an anthro would be bound for professional hell if s/he came out with the sort of generalisation Dr W had just been throwing round at dinner… it’s practically the equivalent of violating the Hippocratic Oath 🙂

    Not that biologists really ought to do that either, really 🙂
