Teaser Tuesday: Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter ~ Tom Franklin

January 11, 2011


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!

“It died up in there. In the rocker panel. Smelled bad for two months. Hottest part of the summer. Sometime, ” he said, “driving along, I swear I can still smell it.”

    Having had a squirrel die in a heat vent, I can truly sympathize with that situation. My teaser is up at Calico Contemplations.
