Teaser Tuesdays

TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

I am currently reading Asleep by Banana Yoshimoto. I love her lyrical writing style after reading Kitchen and Goodbye Tsugumi, and I look forward to read more of her books in the near future. Asleep contains three stories of young women bewitched into a spiritual sleep. The following teaser is extracted from the first novella, Night and Night's Travelers.

To tell the truth, right then I wasn't the slightest bit concerned about Sarah and whether it had been her calling. More than anything, it frightened me that Mari was talking about these things - things related to my brother, who'd been dead for so long - as if it were all perfectly ordinary, part of everyday life.

(Pg 36, Asleep by Banana Yoshimoto)
