Teaser Tuesday 4/6 The Nobodies Album by Carolyln Parkhurst
Teaser Tuesday hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
I just started reading The Nobodies Album by Carolyn Parkhurst. Parkhurst wrote The Dogs of Babel and Lost and Found, really great selections for reading groups. My teaser for today will be the first paragraph. A little long that normal but awfully good!
"There are some stories no one wants to hear. Some stories, once told, won't let you go so easily. I'm not talking about the tedious, the pointless, the disgusting: the bugs in your bag of flour; your hour on the phone with insurance people; the unexplained blood in your urine. I'm talking about narratives of tragedy and pathos so painful, so compelling, that they seem to catch inside you on a tiny hook you didn't even know you'd hung. You wish for a way to pull the story back out; you grow resentful of the very breath that pushed those words into the air. Stories like this have become a specialy of mine." -- The Nobodies Album by Carolyn Parkhurst (Release Date, June 2010)
