TEASER TUESDAYS is hosted by MizB at Should be Reading. The idea is to share a couple of “teaser” sentences from a random page in your current read. I’m reading Sibilla Aleramo’s A Woman, an early work of feminist literature. It is autobiographical, describing a woman’s imprisonment in marriage and, later, independence. Here’s my teaser:
