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 The Eye in the Door, the second novel in Pat Barker’s Regeneration trilogy, set during World War I. Much of the plot concerns rehabilitation of soldiers dramatically affected by events at the front. Here’s my teaser:
In a rational society, a man who spent his days like that wouldn’t have to spend his evenings, his own time, remember, with men who could perfectly well be left to get on with their own lives in their own way. The fact that he’s prepared to do it is a tribute to Head.
