Where am I in this teaser?

Teaser Tuesdays

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

They stare at each other. Then they come together with low, animal moans.

~Page 60, A Steetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am in a two story corner building on a street in New Orleans, visiting my younger sister Stella. She is married to Stanley Kowalski, a crude but raw and sensual person. He gets drunk in the evenings playing cards with his friends, and I don't know how Stella can bear him.

I have been seriously remiss in not reading this book. I hope you enjoyed it.
Have a great week and happy reading! My teaser is here

That teaser conveys so much with only those two sentences, I hope you're enjoying it. :)

Great teaser! I had a (very) small part in a production of Streetcar in college - so much fun.

I remember the play very well but confess to never having read the book. Great story.

I love the play Streetcar Named Desire. At times, it made me pretty upset.

Beth F said...

Excellent! That's such a great play.

It's weird I dont know anything about the book (movie or musical) Street Car. But I know that scene/quote of the guy crying "Stella!". At least I hope thats the right movie scene!

Good teaser
