Teaser Tuesday (28 February)

The last teaser of February? Time flies!

"Anthropologically speaking it was only yesterday that men ceased to club and ravish on the spot any female that attracted their passing whim."
"Yes, I suppose, Doctor", I said, "Life must have been one merry chase in those relaxed and informal old times. 'Nice day, madam. I love you madly. CONK! Oops-a-daisy, my little penguin.'"

p. 337, Anatomy of a Murder. Robert Traver

"No!" was the word that awakened us, "No!" being shouted in a man's loud voice from every house on the block. It can't be. No.

p. 16, The Plot Against America; Philip Roth

  1. Two excellent teasers! Haven't read the Roth book, but I read Anatomy of a Murder many years ago and liked it a lot -- loved the movie, too.
