Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from - that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

In retrospect, Burne-Jones did not cover himself with glory. He told Ruskin’s lawyers that ‘scarcely any body regards Whistler as a serious person’, that Whistler’s art was founded on ‘the art of brag’, and that Whistler rarely ‘committed himself to the peril of completing anything’.

From A Circle of Sisters by Judith Flanders, p. 154.

  2. Mmm...it makes you wonder what the prerequisites for being considered a 'serious person' actually are. Great teaser!

  4. This sounds really intriguing. No teaser for me this week, as I'm still feeling icky.
