Teaser Tuesday (2.23.10)

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!
Going After Cacciato
I feel guilty for the super long teaser I posted last week, so to make up for it I'll post a short one this time around. Short--but still over two sentences; I can't seem to help myself! :/

Here's my teaser, from Going After Cacciato by Tim O'Brien:
"The way in is the way out. To flee Xa one must join it. To go home one must become a refugee." (p97)

  12. Intriguing teaser! It can be hard to select just a few lines that are telling and withholding all at the same time.
