Teaser Tuesdays (October 6, 2015)


“He stepped from the dark porch, into the moonlight, and with his bloody head and his empty stomach hot, savage, and courageous with whiskey, he entered the street which was to run for fifteen years.  The whiskey died away in time and was renewed and died again, but the street ran on.” 
 
Narrative regarding the main character, Joe Christmas, from Light in August by William Faulkner

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 so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

  1. I haven't read this one yet. I love Faulkner but have to be in the right frame of mind. I'll put it on my list. Here's my TT: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-X7

  2. Interesting. This week the teaser on my adult blog comes from Thirty and a Half Excuses by Denise Grover Swank - third in a series of humorous cozies. Happy reading!

    1. I am more so than anything else I've read by Faulkner (As I Lay Dying, Absalom, Absalom! and The Sound and the Fury. Though like those, it isn't very cheery.
