Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. You know the rules: grab your current read, open to a random page and share a two sentence teaser with us (no spoilers!). Be sure to tell us about the book, so we can add it to our TBR list!
This week, my teaser is from At the Bottom of Everything by Ben Dolnick. It’s the story of a man who tries to help an old friend and it looks like it’s going to be a great read.
“I was standing by the railing listening to an intense Israeli man named Jonah tell me about hijras, a caste of Indian transvestites who apparently have the power to curse people, when I realized I was sleeping with my eyes open.
I’m going to need to expand my vocabulary when it comes to the varieties of bad sleep, the way someone on an ocean voyage would need to distinguish between types of storms.”
Okay, that sounds like an interesting conversation to eavesdrop on.
