I´m currently reading this collection of short stories by my favorite new-to-me author Joyce Carol Oates. She´s one for very short sentences so I cheated and searched for a longer one:
“It´s one of those swift unexamined thoughts that sometimes fly into Kristine´s head when she´s in a heightened mood- not alone and not lonely yet alone in her mind- a childish wish (and in this case a lethel wish) that others for whom she feels a mysterious tug of kinship are persons like herself, sharing a secret unspoken bond.
A wounded dancer, an ex-dancer like me.”
(Joyce Carol Oates: The Female of the Species. 113)
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Should Be Reading and this is how it works:
- 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!
