Teaser Tuesday-Jan. 26


Check out Teaser Tuesdays from Should Be Reading.  TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

Grab your current read.

Let the book fall open to a random page.

Share with us two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.

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!

This week my teaser is from Matrimony by Joshua Henkin:
Mia would come home to find him with flour across his face and herbs from the windowsill lined up in glasses, Julian with baking soda in one hand and baking powder in the other, unsure what the difference was.  He appeared unable to distinguish between a garlic clove and a garlic bulb, because one time Mia found him peeling clove after clove of garlic-the recipe had called for three cloves but Julian was peeling three bulbs-and he suspected his error only once he saw the recipe was supposed to take an hour and he'd spent an hour just peeling the garlic.
