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 Stanley Middleton’s Holiday, the 1974 Booker Prize winner. The protagonist, Edwin, is on a seaside holiday following a recent marriage breakup. Here’s my teaser:
Viewed from a yard or two’s distance on the beach or in the house she was attractive, the belle. Now she approached, she changed, coarsened into the typist-suburban housewife who talked inanities or ironed in semi-detached houses the country over.
