Teaser Tuesday – Sept 7th 2010

The Secret by Eva Hoffman

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Here is my teaser for this week from page 56 of The Secret by Eva Hoffman: “After that the letters slowed down to a trickle – two, three a year – then stopped. I couldn’t figure out what transpired exactly, whether there had been a final breach or only a growing disappointment and a gradual cooling off; but as the letters fizzled out my resentment rose.”

Please feel free to leave a comment and add your own Teaser Tuesday, either in the text or as a link.

Human Traces by Sebastian Faulks

Human Traces by Sebastian Faulks

Sebastian Faulks has certainly written an interesting and wide ranging selection of novels over the years, from the excellent Birdsong to the intriguingly strange Engleby. Human Traces which was first published in 2005, again took a new tangent, exploring the early pioneering years of psychiatry, and the essence of what it is to be human.

Sebastian Faulks was born in Berkshire, England, in 1953. Faulks’ first novel, A Trick of the Light, was published in 1984. Since then, in a prolific writing career, he has gone on to publish a total of twelve novels.
