This meme was originally begun by The Purple Booker. I discovered it on my blogging friend’s blog, Brainfluff. Both are worth a look into.
The idea is to select at random a sentence or two that will entice the reader to find out more about the book you are reading and maybe read that book himself/herself.
Today’s Tuesday Teaser is from The Address, a novel about the mysterious stabbing death of the architect of The Dakota, an infamous luxury apartment house in New York City. It comes near the end of the book:
“‘You’re ill, let me help.’ Sara put her arm around the woman, who leaned into her.
‘I feel faint.’
No wonder, returning home to find your husband’s lover hanging about in the children’s nursery.”
It is NOT as it seems at first glance .as you will guess if you know that The woman who almost faints is the architect’s wife, and Sarah is his mistress.
