Teaser Tuesdays: The Rights of Desire


TEASER TUESDAYS asks you to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!
  • Please avoid spoilers!

Here's page 37 of The Rights of Desire by André Brink:


A lived-in body that has suffered, that has endured, that has survived, has a kind of beauty you may not think possible from where you are now. Every line, every vericose vein, every fold of fat, every grey hair becomes a sign of what you've shared, of what you love.
