It’s Tuesday, Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesdays

It’s Tuesday, Where Are You?

I’m making a non-fiction foray into the history of prostitution in London from mediaeval times to the present day - and feeling very glad I was born into modern middle-class security.

London: The Wicked City by Fergus Linnane.

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!

Plate 3 of Hogarth's Rake’s Progress shows the room at the tavern as the act is about to begin. The posture woman is stripping off in the foreground and in the background a porter known as Leathercoat or Lethercote is bringing in the platter and the candle.

From London: The Wicked City by Fergus Linnane, p. 105.
