Teaser Tuesday - 300310

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!


Too Much Happiness by Alice Munro

What I Know in Myself is my own Evil. THat is the secret of my comfort.


pg. 23 (Dimensions).



This book is a collection of short stories and the ones I have read so far are quite good. Most of them are easy to read and make you think. The stories are about complex people so that makes them interesting and none of them have the traditional "happy happy" style endings or anything like that. They are actually kind of unsettling in some ways. Definently not a book to read if you need a cheer up.

Know thyself - that's the great directive, isn't it? I think most every human is cognizant of a little bit of evil within themselves. It's what makes us human...

But that mused upon (or whatever) - nice teaser! It made me philosophize a bit, which isn't usual. I liked it. *grin*

If you'd like, you can check out mine here.

I love the cover.

My `teaser` is up.

Alice Audrey said...

So the title is a bit deceptive, but the cover makes up for it. Interesting reading you've been doing.

I hope that you enjoy your book. Here's mine.

Interesting teaser! I have never read anything by Alice Munro.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I love those two sentences. What's scary is that this is probably true of most of us, in that we have our own evil,but we don't admit it.
