Teaser Tuesday: American Wife ~ Curtis Sittenfeld

July 18, 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!

In a tone of feigned lightheartedness, I said, ‘I fully expect you to get it out of him on the ride home and report back to me!’ I expected no such thing.

‘All very cloak-and-dagger, isn’t it?’ Harold shook his head. ‘Let us know if there’s anything we can do.’

p. 324 American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld

    Good teaser. The speaker obviously doesn’t expect success. I wonder why? Thanks for stopping by.

    the speaker is sending him on a fool’s errand on purpose. Why? Good teaser.
