Teaser Tuesday

• Grab your current read.
• Let the book fall open to a random page.
• Share with us two "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!

(Book 4: The Part About the Crimes) by
Roberto Bolaño
Page 413 - Let's say the Penitent lives downtown. You could walk downtown from Reforma, and if it was nighttime, no one would notice you smelled like piss.

An American Tragedy by Thomas Dreiser
Page 461 - But as for him accepting such an evil suggestion and acting upon it . . . never! Yet here was his own problem growing hourly more desperate, since every day, or at least every other day, brought him letters from Roberta or a note from Sondra - their respective missives maintaining the same relative contrast between ease and misery, gayety of mood and the somberness of defeat and uncertainty.

Night Train to Lisbon by Pascal Mercier
Page 169 - Words that were like a beacon to us when we began to feel that the visible life can't be all of life? Words without which we wouldn't be what we are?
