A bit grim, but I adore the punctuation.
“People did not kill themselves that way; if you wanted to jump, then you went to the Fourth Bridge, or the Dean Bridge if you preferred the ground to water.
The Dean Bridge: Ruthven Todd had written a poem about that, had he not, and had said that its iron spikes `curiously repel the suicides´; curiously, because the thought of minor pain should surely mean nothing in the face of complete destruction.”
(Alexander McCall Smith: The Sunday Philosophy Club. 13)
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!
