In a brief hiatus from WWII, I'm reading The Man Who Cancelled Himself by David Handler, one of his Stewart Hoag mysteries.
He held up a pudgy hand for silence, even though he was the one doing the talking. I could see the fresh scars on the inside of his wrist from when he'd tried to kill himself with a razor blade earlier that summer. A few days later he swallowed the contents of an economy-sized bottle of Uncle Chubby's children's aspirin, 277 tablets in all.Which is three sentences, but I didn't want to stop at two.
Previously on Teaser Tuesday: I could not get through The Irregulars, which was disappointing (both the book and the fact that it didn't hold my interest). My eyes kept slipping off the page. The author did her research, but the story ultimately seems to be, Roald Dahl was posted to the U.S., cultivated a lot of contacts and passed on information to the Brits. I'm not sure if it simply wasn't that big a story, or if it wasn't told well, or I wasn't in the mood, or a combination. My suspicion is that this should have been an article rather than a book, but she was committed to a book, so a book it had to be.
