Teaser Tuesdays (April 14, 2015)



Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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!

My Teaser: No kidding either. The routine of snore, get belted with pillow, wake up, say hmm, fall back to sleep, goes on well into the morning. “Come on.” Finally, “cut it out.”

From Gravity’s Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon, chapter 1. Beyond the Zero

  1. Hope you enjoy this. I tried to read this about 4 times back in the late 70s or early 80s. I never got past page 50 or so. I liked other books by Pynchon, but for some reason not this one. Maybe I should try again.
