Teaser Tuesday, April 27

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!

Fool: A NovelThis week I'm reading Fool by Christopher Moore, a retelling of the story of King Lear from the jester's very bawdy perspective. And my two sentences, chosen completely at random without any planning or preparation on my part whatsoever are found on page 66:

So I told the anchoress of the stoning of St. Stephen, of the persecution of St. Sebastian, and the beheading of St. Valentine, and she, in turn, told me stories of the saints I had never heard in catechism.

"And so," said Thalia, "that is the story of how St. Rufus of Pipewrench was licked to death by marmots."

Previously on Teaser Tuesday:I finished Once Was Lost which I review here.
