Teaser Tuesday

• Grab your current read.
• Let the book fall open to a random page.
• Share with us two "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
• 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!

A Thousand Peaceful Cities by Jerzy Pilch
Page 47 - It looked as if he wished to perform a pantomime called "The Flight of the Vodka Glass to the Light," but the Commandant interrupted the performance with an imperial gesture, put the date book, which was still lying on the table before him, away in his pocket, and pointed to the sacred place on the oilcloth where the vessel, already taken down from the heights, but still shot through with special radiance, ought to stand. And it came to pass: Father placed the vodka glass before Commandant Jeremiah and filled it.
