tell me a story


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 Teaser Tuesdays participants can add the book to their To Read Lists if they like your teasers!

Three sentences:

The most powerful words in English are “tell me a story,” words that are intimately related to the complexity of history, the origins of language, the continuity of the species, the taproot of our humanity, our singularity, and art itself.  I was born into the century in which novels lost their stories, poems their rhymes, paints their form, and music its beauty, but that does not mean I had to like that trend or go along with it.  I fight against these movements with every book I write.
