Teaser Tuesday (11)

Teaser Tuesday is a bookish meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. Anyone can play! Just do the following:


Grab your current read.
Go to a random page.
Post two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure what you share doesn't give away too much! You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and the author, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

My teaser this week comes from Ransom by David Malouf, page 78.

'Well as I said, none of that concerns anyone but myself and I've tried never to let it show. It's of no account what I happen to be feeling at any moment in my actual person - whether I have the toothache or a belly swollen from eating too many peaches, or am raging with anger or impatience or desire - so long as I sit still and fill a space towards which others may look in reverence.'

This is very much on my wish list - I saw it reviewed on ABC First Tuesday of the Month book review. I love reading Australian fiction.

Mine is a classic this week

Confusing teaser. I'm reading an odd ball book called Blue Food Revolution.

LOL...

If I told you what was going on, it might not be as intriguing. I will say that David Malouf is highly successful Australian writer! It's an excellent book.
