Teaser Tuesday, September 21

As I am wont to do of a Tuesday, I will be picking 2-ish sentences more or less randomly from the book I'm currently reading in hopes it will intrigue you, perhaps enough for you to read it as well.

The Principles of UncertaintyI just picked up the book Principles of Uncertainty by Maira Kalman (no, that's not a typo) from the library yesterday. It is wonderful. My new absolute favorite book of all time for the moment. Certain anonymous friends of mine would be wise not to get this book at this time. After all, Christmas is coming.

Here are the two sentences:

The point is, Rick's father, Hy Meyerowitz, a dry cleaning supply salesman from the Bronx, won the Charlie Chaplain Look Alike contest in 1931. That is a very big point in the plus column of life.

Bonus: here's an image of a sample page:

 I'll probably post a review later this week.  But what's there to say, really?  It's fantastic.

P.S. I should mention that Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B. of Should Be Reading.  Hello everyone from over there!  Thanks for visiting!

Is that the lady who does work for the NY Times? Her style looks familiar.

The art work if fab, but it's kind of hard to read the lettering.

My teaser is here.

I like the illustrations...you don't find those often in adult books, but I enjoy when they're there.

Thanks for stopping my my blog!
