Teaser Tuesdays


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly event hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Here's how it works:

*Grab your current read
*Open to a random page
*Share two or three "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page. Be careful not to include spoiliers! You don't want to ruin the book for others.
*Remember to show the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

Here's mine from Robert F. Kennedy: A Memoir by Jack Newfield:

What his romanticism did was provide an emotional ballast for his pragmaticism, to give it a humanist thrust. It was what made him different from more detached and conservative friends, like Robert McNamara, Byron White, or Theodore Sorensen. Kennedy identified with people, not data, or institutions, or theories. Poverty was a specific black face to him, not a manila folder full of statistics.

Yes, the Kennedys always make interesting reading - Bobby especially, I should think. Good teaser!

Hmm, pretty detailed. I've never read anything on the Kennedy's - esp not a bio.

Good teaser! I'm not big on biographies or memoirs, but the Kennedys were certainly one of the great American Dynasties. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

I don't read biographies much, but Robert Kennedy was a very interesting person. :) Great teaser!

Thanks for looking at mine and commenting!
