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!
The Way of All Fish: A Novel by Martha Grimes p. 170
"Oddly, given his phenomenal success and all his money, Giverney was not beset by the monstrous ego that Bass found in so many writers, but he was being impossible when it came to negotiating this contract that Bass himself had been slaving over. Giverney and Mackenzie deserved each other, both with their impossible demands and their idiotic terms."
One reason I could never, ever be an agent is that even the idea of negotiating contracts makes me shiver. Of course in this situation, Giverney is trying to be unreasonable and not come to terms, but you'll need to read the book to find out why!
