Teaser Tuesday

Its been a WHILE since i last posted a teaser but this week i couldn't resist. I'm 136 pages into Red Hook Road by Ayelet Waldman and so far : )

Now if i remember correctly Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! All you have to do is:

_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 so others can find your book.

Here's my teaser

"How was it, Mr. Kimmelbrod wondered, sitting alone at his daughter's kitchen table a few hours after the unveiling, that a man who has experienced so much death, who was so rapidly approaching death himself , could muster so little in the way of comfort for the bereaved? Shouldn't the magnitude of his losses have provided him with some insight into or ready familiarity with things, the words and actions, that gave a person solace?........... What had he learned from the deaths of so many of those he loved? Only that there was no apparent limit to the amount of grief a man could endure if he allowed inertia and the passage of time to pass him through his days." pg 112

Red Hook Road by Ayelet Waldman
