teasertuesdays31Teaser 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! (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!


“A House Of Mr. Biswas” by V.S. Naipaul

“I can’t tell you how sad it make me to leave this house,” the solicitor’s clerk told Mr. Biswas. “Really for my mother sake, man. That is the onliest reason why I have to move. The old queen can’t man age the steps.” And so Mr. Biswas, ex-sign painter, ex-bus conductor, ex-journalist, achieved his heart’s desire and moved into a dwelling of his very own. It looked “like a huge and squat sentry-box,” he paid too much for it, the upper floor sagged, the windows would not shut, one door would not open, but it was a house.   (Page 53)
