Teaser Tuesday 1/19 Every Day in Tuscany

Barbara's picture

I love Frances Mayes'  (Under the Tuscany Sun) description of Italian life so I was jazzed that she wrote another one coming out in March. A celebration of her two-decades-long love affair with Tuscany.

My teaser today is the first two sentences of her new book. 

In winter-cold blue light, the bells of Cortona ring louder. The cold iron clapper hitting the frozen bell produces clear, shocked, hard gongs that reverberate in the heads of us frozen ones in the piazza, ringing in our skulls and down to our heels, striking the paving stones. -- Every Day in Tuscany by Frances Mayes, March 2010

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!

What's yours today?
