Open what you’re reading now, pick a random couple of sentences and post them (scroll way down until you see the words “Leave a Reply” and enter your sentences, title and author in the box) as your Tuesday Teaser to tempt us to add your book to our TBR list. Here’s mine from The Bone People, truly a classic by Keri Hulme, the 1985 winner of the Booker Prize:
A father holding his son in his arms says, “You are still too thin, but you”ve always been slight ..and it’s been better since Kerewin (the female protagonist) arrived. Well, not so much arrived as you discovered her…I wonder what she really thinks of us.”
This is one of the strangest books I’ve ever read–both horrible and beautiful at the same time. I am only on page 172 out of 437 pages, but I am anticipating the ending with awe and almost fear. It is a strong book dealing with a strong issue and peopled by strong characters. Anything could happen.
