My two teasers

Divisadero by Michael Ondaatje

She told him it was nothing, but at the farm, when she climbed out of the truck, she could hardly walk and he carried her into the house. It was the first time he had touched her in a year.

  1. Sounds like a story of alienation. Hope there is reconciliation at the end.

  2. Makes me wonder what’s wrong with her o_O
    Great teaser though.

    here’s mine: http://semicrazed.blogspot.com/2010/11/teaser-tuesday-8.html


  3. Here is my teaser from The Wolves of Andover by Kathleen Kent (Page 8):

    Martha saw it all clear in that moment: this was the instant her place in the family would be decided. If she lost her footing at the outset, she would forever be dealt with as no more than a servant.

  4. Oh, what strange freaks one’s thoughts are guilty of when one is starving. I feel myself lifted up by these notes, dissolved in tones, and I float out, I feel so clearly. How I float out, soaring high above the mountains, dancing through zones of light!
    -Hunger by Knut Hamsun
