In case you are in two minds whether to participate in my literary giveaway blog hop that I have going on here till June 25, here is a teaser from one of the giveaway books, In Custody by Anita Desai that I hope will enchant you enough to participate.
That, he saw, was the glory of poets – that they could distance events and emotions, place them where perspective made it possible to view things clearly and calmly.
He realized that he loved poetry not because it made things immediate but because it removed them to a position where they became bearable.

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!
