I loved this book meme but don’t seem to be able to find it anymore. So another re-post fyi.
My teaser today comes from one of my favourite authors even though I have only read one book of his which is “Traveller of the Century“. The author is Andres Neuman, a young Spanish/Argentinian man who’s writing I find epic.
This book is about a young man travelling in an imaginative Germany. He ends up in a town and finds love and friends and a lot of contemplating about life and its challenges. Beautiful language and images just keep you reading.
But here is my teaser:
Hans looked up at the clock on the Tower of the Wind. Slowly he made his way back to the inn. Only when he found himself standing in front of it did he realise with astonishment he hadn’t got lost.

“Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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!”
