Teaser Tuesday: Lord of Misrule

Little Spinoza's head flew up and  the horse plunged forward into the small party gathering at the winner's circle.  A woman screamed and another in a black picture hat sat down in the dirt.

-- Lord of Misrule by Jaimy Gordon, which won the National Book Award for 2010.

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


  1. That's a fun little scene. Fantastic teaser.

    Mine is here

  2. one of my friends just posted a raving review of this on Goodreads - I can't wait to hear if you loved it too. It might be going on my TBR list!

  3. Well, that's intriguing.

    My teaser is from Major Pettigrew's Last Stand, such a terrific book.

  4. A very intriguing teaser! It might be a funny scene or maybe a scary one, I'm not sure which, but my interest is definitely piqued! I have heard great things about this book, I hope you're enjoying it!

  5. Thanks for the comments. I'll come by and visit all your teasers.

  6. Loved the teaser and love horse racing stories. We have a couple of good racing thriller writers, here in the UK (Dick Francis, John Francome, Jenny Pitman and Mark Daniels), but I would be intrigued to read something by a US author, as a comparison. I may give this one a try.

    Thanks for the recommend,

  7. That's a great teaser...you keep reading books that are on my TBR list for the future. I'm still waiting (impatiently) for the library hold gods to decide it's my turn for this one.
