Good morning, and welcome to Teaser Tuesdays, hosted by Should Be Reading. This event allows us to spotlight excerpts from our current reads.
Here’s 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!
Today I’m excerpting from a book that’s been on my stacks for a long, long time. But that doesn’t mean it’s not a delightful read. Just that I tend to buy ‘way more books than I can devour in any kind of reliable pattern. It’s a long story….
The New Yorkers, by Cathleen Schine, is a tale about people who live in an Upper West Side neighborhood who meet and become connected through their dogs.
Here’s my teaser:
Back in the high-rise she would have to move out of, Polly, undressed and ready for bed, sat in the living room and looked out at the faint sparkle of city lights penetrating the gray of the storm. The apartment was on the twentieth floor and she could see the Empire State Building, its spire red and shedding a glow as rosy as the dawn. p.42.
Isn’t that a wonderful passage? I love it and can’t wait to learn more about the story.
What did you find this week? I hope you’ll stop by and share some comments and links.
