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!

An American Tragedy by Thomas Dreiser
Page 355 - Indeed, the fact that despite her seeming recent success she had really compromised herself in such a way that unless through marriage with Clyde she was able to readjust herself to the moral level her parents understood and approved, she, instead of being the emissary of a lowly and modestly improving social condition for all, might be looked upon as one who had reduced it to a lower level still - its destroyer - was sufficient to repress and reduce her even more. A very depressing and searing thought.

Night Work by Thomas Glavinic
Page 155 - He saw the shapes boring into him but couldn't fend them off. They were there.

Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
Page 169 - Because it's beyond him? Because he can't jump in?
