Teaser Tuesday: The Pursuit of Alice Thrift by Elinor Lipman




And this is exactly how a woman agrees to see a man second time after finding him neither interesting, intelligent, nor compelling: He announces that he is a recent widower, vulnerable, like a man without an epidermis. That you are his first plunge into the treacherous waters of the Sea of Dates.

-- The Pursuit of Alice Thrift by Elinor Lipman. Her books are always fresh and fun -- perfect for summer. This one is about a socially inept surgery resident who finds herself dating a third-tier candy salesman.


Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
