Teaser Tuesday: The Cookbook Collector by Allegra Goodman and Possession ~ A. S. Byatt

November 30, 2010

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!

These are business-slash-cults started by refugees from the East Coast who come out here to graft their radical-chic plan onto some unsuspecting western species like the spotted owl, or the coastal redwood, or the Berkley grad student.

Now if this were a true dialogue – but that is entirely as you may wish it to be.

    We get a lot of those Eastcoasters here in Montana, too. They’re always so sure of themselves and generally only half right.

    Great teasers! I’m not sure that I normally would have picked these two up, but they both sound really interesting.
