Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Just do the following: Grab your current read, open to a random page and share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
I have wanted to read this book ever since I did a post on this great Australian author as part of my Aussie Author in Focus series.
I have seen the end of all this, clearly, in imagination: the earth transfigured and the gods walking upon it in their bodies’ light. And I have seen the earth, as you have reader, already prepared for it, since our minds can conceive, our hands fashion, what we are not yet ready to enter: cornfields a fathom high, stacked in the sunlight, swaying under the moon; olive groves blowing from green to silver in a breeze, as if some god spoke the word silver, and his breath in passing over the scene transformed it with the turning of the leaves.(Page 23)
Deep and thought provoking hey…
Looking forward to reading your teasers!
