Teaser Tuesdays: Between You & Me

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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Between You & Me: Confessions of a Comma Queen by Mary Norris pp. 36-37

"I marked it, and gave my proof to the fiction editor, Bill Buford. Later, Bill's assistant came bounding up the stairs and delivered to me a color Xerox of the first page of my proof, on which Buford had written in blue, "Of Mary Norris, Roth said: 'Who is this woman? And will she come live with me?'""

I am not a fan of Philip Roth (in fact, I haven't read him, but I've not been enamored of what I've heard) but this is still a huge compliment. And I might have been inclined to read his books, were he ever to say something so flattering to me. Ms. Norris did edit some amazing writers at The New Yorker.
