This week my teaser lines come from Slade House, David Mitchell's new novel (from Random House) that's just out today. This snippet is from page 134, or Location 1521 of the e-book version:
...here's the small black iron door. Stupidly, I look back, like you never should in stories. The figures flicker nearer.And she really should not have looked back.
You'll probably be hearing a lot about that small black iron door in the weeks ahead -- this book seems to be one of the hot items in the literary world this season.
