4. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
I’m currently reading a lot of books, so I was not sure which one to choose, but eventually I picked up this one! If you haven’t read it yet or heard about it, The Bell Jar is a classic and feminist novel written by Sylvia Plath, and published in 1963.
Here’s my teaser, from p.25
“The poet ate his salad with his fingers, leaf by leaf, while talking to me about the antithesis of nature and art. I couldn’t take my eyes of the pale, stubby white fingers travelling back and forth from the poet’s salad bowl to the poet’s mouth with one drippin lettuce leaf after another.”
In this passage, the main character, Esther, talks about the fact that whatever you do in public, as long as you stay confident, you will be alright because people won’t dare telling you that what you’re doing is wrong.
