Teaser Tuesday (August 3)
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!
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Another book that has been made into a wonderful movie. This time, I loved the characters but hated the ending, so when I found out the book ended differently, I couldn’t help wanting to look it up:
Clare and I kept no secrets – that was the heady, reckless aspect of our friendship. Perhaps it was our substitute for the creaturely knowledge other couples glean from sex. Clare and I confessed everything. We stripped ourselves naked and numbered our faults. We knew one another’s most disreputable fantasies; we confessed our deceits and greeds, our self-flattering lies. We described all our sexual entanglements, and we knew the condition of one another’s bowels.
And now, for the first time, I wanted to hold something apart. I wasn’t sure why.
— p.122, A Home at the End of the World by Michael Cunningham.
