TEASER TUESDAY | Sex Drugs and Modern Art


This week's Teaser Tuesday;


Declan could have said that he disliked photographs because he thought they trapped people; people couldn't move in a photograph, they were rooted to the spot, striking that one single pose for the rest of their lives, like a bush in the garden. Photographs gave people a false sense of understanding their pasts, of knowing how things were, how they themselves were.

Teaser Tuesday, a blog meme hosted by MizB on Should Be Reading.
 

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! (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!
What's your Teaser Tueday?

  7. Or maybe photos give you a merely different understanding of what was. Interesting teaser.

  8. Thanks for popping by, Kathy, Nats, Fredamans (having trouble leaving a comment on your blog - sorry, will keep trying - was having problems here too)

    Thanks also Melanie and Jo - you are welcome!

    There are some great teasers this week.

    Yes, the cover is great, Mel. And I chose this tease as it does make you think, like many snippets of this book I could have chosen.

    Have a good day!

  9. Hi Lorin and Alice,

    Thanks for commenting. I used to eat Tofu a fair bit - and was vegetarian for about 13 years, but it was so hard work. These days it's much easier.

    I like that Alice - in fact the author, Evan Maloney did say more about photos - but alas I could only pick two sentences!

    :)
