Teaser Tuesday.



Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB over at Should Be Reading

This is 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 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.
  This weeks Teaser Tuesday comes from:

 How To Make Gravy by Paul Kelly


OK, I'm going to cheat a bit here. Paul Kelly is an amazing singer/songwriter. His lyrics are pure poetry, so instead of posting a single quote, I'm going to post the lyrics to one of his songs. Each chapter of this book starts with song lyrics, so technically, it's still a quote! :)

From St Kilda to Kings Cross

From St Kilda to Kings Cross is thirteen hours on a bus
I pressed my face against the glass and watched the white lines rushing past
And all around me felt like all inside me
And my body left me and my soul went running

Have you ever seen Kings Cross when the rain is falling soft?
I came in on the evening bus, form Oxford Street i cut across
And if the rain don't fall too hard everything shines
Just like a postcard
Everything goes on just the same
Fair-weather friends are the hungriest friends
I keep my mouth well shut, i cross their open hands

I want to see the sun go down from St Kilda esplanade
Where the beach needs reconstruction, where the palm trees have it hard
I'd give you all of Sydney harbour (all that land, all that water)
For that one sweet promenade
 And just so you know what it should sound like



I'd love to know what your teaser is this week. Leave me a link!

  1. I don't really read autobiographies, but this is one that I would consider reading.
