Teaser Tuesdays; 'Tis


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading

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!

'Tis by Frank McCourt
I am listening to the audio so I have no clue what page this is but it's a funny quip that ahows that Frank McCourt is much funnier than he gets credit for. I couldn't get through his books on paper because half the humor is lost on the page, but on audio it all comes through quite clearly.

“It's not enough to be American. You always have to be something else, Irish-American, German-American, and you'd wonder how they'd get along if someone hadn't invented the hyphen.”
