Teaser Tuesday: The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey

by Notorious Spinks on 03.08.2011

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 either in the comments below or on your own blog (give a link to your blog so we can check it out!)

* 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 so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser Tuesday:

The Last Days of Ptolemy GreyWhen Ptolemy picked up the box a huge gutter-roach fell out and onto the sink.  The black and brown and russet-red insect flipped from his back onto his legs and stood there on an old plate that Ptolemy hadn’t used or cleaned in over a decade.  The old man slapped his hand down hard on the bug, but when he pulled back, the roach leaped in the air, spread his beetle-like wings, and flew toward the back of the kitchen.

The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey by Walter Mosley
–p.76

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your 2 ‘teasers’ in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog).

Thanks!
