Teaser Tuesdays

Quote a couple of spoiler-free sentences from the book you’re reading to tempt others.

"After you were born, pink then blue, you then Danny, your existences were still pegged closely together, like your newborn hats on the washing line."
How to Paint A Dead Man by Sarah Hall p. 4

Sounds pretty ominous. Were they twins or a sibling, with one stillborn?

Paperback Reader said...

Twins who grew up very close and now one is dead, with the other grieving (in the opening pages). The narrative pulls you in; the "you" she is referring to is herself.
