Teaser Tuesdays: Self-Made Man

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!

Self-Made Man: One Woman's Year Disguised as a Man by Norah Vincent p. 54

"But when I responded to him emotionally, I had to modify the temptation to mother him, because after I'd heard some of the things he told me - stories about beatings he had suffered as a child and the struggles he had had trying to come to grips with the abuse in silence - the woman in me wanted to hold him and let him cry it out. But that would have been like throwing a wool blanket over his head, exactly the wrong thing to do."
I adore "stunt memoirs" and this one has the added bonus of hopefully giving my insight into the male mind - yay!

How are you liking this book? I tried to read it a few years ago, but couldn't get through it even though the premise really, really interested me :(

My teaser (for Lonely Werewolf Girl) is @ Stuff & Nonsense

Yes, some insight into the male mind would be very welcome! I've looked at this one but haven't read it yet. It does sound intriguing, though. Excellent teaser!

Here’s my teaser from Book of Shadows.
