Teaser Tuesday, March 9

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! (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!


Having just watched the movie Alfie, I am reading the autobiography of Maurice Micklewhite, aka Michael Caine, called What's It All About? Here's the teaser:

When I first started to date girls, our heavy petting was always done in the darkness and privacy of these bomb sites. I am probably the only man in the world to whom the smell of burning rubbish is an aphrodisiac.


Love. Him.

Update of previous teasers:

I quickly finished The Girl who Ran Off With Daddy (3/2), which was Handler's usual noirish, dishy self; but for the life of me, I could not get through Eva Moves the Furniture (2/23). I think that was partly due to the fact that I had only a month earlier read a ghost story set in post-WWII England in which the doctor fiance doesn't believe something supernatural is happening (The Little Stranger, TT 1/5). Who knew that was such a common plot? Clearly, though, I am drawn to WWII England; I expect to be reading more set in this period.
