Teaser Tuesdays: My Own Country

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!

My Own Country: A Doctor's Story by Abraham Verghese p. 30

"As I write this, it is difficult to image that unreal time, 1983, in the history of AIDS. Not only did we not know what caused AIDS, there was no test to say who did and who did not have the mysterious disease."

Ugh! We are so lucky not to be living in that terrible time of uncertainty anymore. however I imagine most doctors in the 1980s thought we'd surely have a cure or at least a vaccine for AIDS by 2013.
