Teaser Tuesdays: If Beale Street Could Talk

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!
Please avoid spoilers!
This weeks teasers is from If Beale Street Could Talk by James Baldwin. (again, a little over two sentences)
"I know I can't help you very much right now-Gold knows what I wouldn't give if I could. But I know about suffering; if it helps. I know that is ends. I aint't going to tell you no lies, like it always ends for the better. Sometimes it ends for the worse. You can suffer so bad that you can be driven to a place where you can't even suffer gain: and that's the worse."
-page 112 (paperback)

Don't forget to post a link to your teaser!

I want to read it.

  1. James Baldwin is a wonderful writer. In the long ago I read most of his novels and hope to start on his short stories soon.
