Teaser Tuesday: The New Confessions
"From time to time, however, they break out -- lava cracking the pumice -- and dominate with the same rampaging potency. What is lust, adult lust, after all, but the desire to recapture the heady sensations of adolescent sexuality?"
-- The New Confessions by William Boyd.
This is a great book -- funny and full of life. It is entertaining from the get go as the hero describes his Scottish upbringing, WWI experiences, and nascent film career in post-war Berlin. At over 500 pages, it would count for the Chunkster Challenge if I had started it after the challenge starts on February 1. Oh well.
Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by Should Be Reading, where you can find the official rules for this weekly event.
