Teaser Tuesday with Half Asleep In Frog Pajamas

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
If you've never read any Tom Robbins, you're missing out on one of the funniest and most inventive writers today. This isn't romance, fantasy or science-fiction. It's satire and all of the above. It's hard to describe his style, but be prepared to have your mind blown if you pick up any book by Robbins.
Here's your teaser:
"Oh? You're personally acquainted with the gentleman?" Under the fingernails of his voice, there can be detected the green cheese of suspicion. (page 100)

  13. Oh, I liked it! Especially "the fingernails of his voice" and "the green chees of suspicion" bits :) I think I've heard of this author before but never read anything by him. Will definitely check out his books next time I'm at the bookstore!
