Teaser Tuesdays 09.29.09

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

*Grab your current read.
*Open to a random page.
*Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
*BE CAREFUL NOT TO USE SPOILERS.
*Include the title and author so others can add it to their TBR list.

My Teaser:

We were inundated all around with tightrope acrobats, puppeteers, mime artists, performing animals—it was as if a circus had been let loose in the streets! Every balladeer and vendor had a song to sing—about liberty in America, about the Queen's naughtiness, and lots of songs about love, of course.

From The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. by Sandra Gulland.

That's a hoot! I hate it when I'm inundated by tightrope acts. :)

That's hilarious! You wonder how on earth that assortment of people would all have congregated at the same place at the same time. Great teaser!

My own teaser is at Bookishgal.
