TEASER TUESDAYS is hosted by MizB at Should be Reading; I’ve modified this version to allow more than two sentences from anywhere on the page:
- Grab your current read.
- Let the book fall open to a random page.
- Share with us a “teaser” sentences from that page. Please share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
Here’s my teaser:
Now that I’m old enough to be a grandfather, I wonder how the inconsistencies of my life read to those I love and those who trust me. I hope the confidence outweighs the uncertainties.
This is from Behind the Mask … No More, a memoir by Byron Nease, who performed both the role of Raoul and the Phantom in various productions of The Phantom of the Opera. I’m just starting to read it; there’s a lot of personal baggage in the memoir, but I think I’ll find some good lessons in the metaphor of the masks we may wear.
