Teaser Tuesday #11

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Mizb at Should Be Reading.  To participate, you need to:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers
  • Share the title and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser

This week's teaser comes from:

The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson: A Novel
The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson by Jerome Charyn

I dare not ask Zilpah about Miss Rebecca's love poem, though my mind is like a massive flint-stone of sparks & syllables on fire.  And while I imagine Rebecca's words, Zilpah starts to read - she's memorized the poem.

I'm loving the language flow in these two sentences.  I am eager to finish this book and post a review of it.  I'm also hosting a blog tour stop for this book this Saturday, February 19th.


  1. What fun! We love Zilpah too. We posted your Tuesday Teaser over at the facebook page for "The Secret Life of Emily Dickinson."
