Teaser Tuesday 3-9-2010

“I came home from that summer in Karachi and London – head swimming with the voices of a reconstructed past, full of a self-importance I couldn’t wait to share – only to find that my family had been busy arranging the future in my absence. Ameena’s future, at any rate.”

– p. 146 of The Writing on My Forehead by Nafisa Haji –


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!

    Ah, it sounds familiar. I’ve dealt with the same feelings after coming home from living abroad. I’m curious about who Ameena is, though – and what her future is. Great teaser!

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

    I occasionally look at your tweets and discovered one which said that you were researching on laws applying to horses 🙂 That looks really fascinating! Didn’t know where to comment, and so am doing that here. Is this a normal day for you (researching on law pertaining to horses), or is this one of those exotic tasks?

      No that is not a normal task for me. But you never know what the day will bring you as an attorney.

      And you should join twitter – then you can comment there. 🙂

        Interesting to know that – it is nice when the day is filled with surprises (of the interesting kind) 🙂

        I am tempted to join Twitter, but I am scared that I will keep looking at it all day without doing anything else 🙂 Thanks for the suggestion though. I will definitely think about it.
