Teaser Tuesdays

teasertuesdays31 Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • 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 teaser  from page 202 of Lonelyhearts: The Screwball World of Nathanael West and Eileen McKeney by Marion Meade:

A more accurate description of the company would be Cheapsville: its factory asembly line spewed out a constant stream of quickie action pictures using the most economical methods. Writers were given three weeks, or less, to do a script.

  1. Your book sounds interesting. As a writer, I always find it fascinating to learn about other writer’s experiences and process.

    • Well, I’m not so sure how much you could actually take away from this book. West was a bit of a mess. As was many of his fellow writers back then. But it really is an interesting book. I had this completely different image in my head of West based on something I learned years ago in school.
