Teaser Tuesdays: Rules of Civility

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!

Rules of Civility by Amor Towles

"To her credit, Eve was making an honest go of it in New York. She had arrived in 1936 with enough of her father's money to get a single at Mrs. Martingale's boardinghouse and enough of his influence to land a job as a marketing assistant at the Pembroke Press--promoting all of the books that she'd avoided so assiduously in school."

I like this girl, Eve. To have Daddy's money but work anyway, and want to make your own way (albeit with a leg up. It is 1936 after all.)
