Teaser Tuesday: Drown

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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!

My Teaser:

She called Papi a desgraciado and a puto of the highest order for abandoning them, a traitor worm, an eater of public lice, a cockless, ball-less cabron. He showed Jo-Jo the letters, often at drunken bitter moments, and Jo-Jo would shake his head, waving for two more beers.

– Drown by Junot Diaz.

  1. Bilingual cursing and insults sound more intimidating than sticking to one language. I’ll have to remember that next time I need to insult someone. I’ve had Junot Diaz on my TBR list for a while now.

Say something and make my day!
