This week my teaser lines come from The Burgess Boys, by Elizabeth Strout. The book came out earlier this year, and the publishers were nice enough to send me a copy. But what with one thing and another, I'm just now getting around to reading it. In fact, I just opened it for the first time this morning and started browsing the pages -- so I'm not really sure what's going on here. I'm pretty sure this is a mother talking to her son, though.
"Go shower," she said. "And put on nice clothes."Actually, that could be me talking to the hubby!
"What's nice clothes?" he asked.
"A shirt with a collar. And no jeans."
"No jeans?" This was not defiant, but worried.
"Okay. Jeans without holes." [p.33]
