Teaser Tuesday-The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by, Carson McCullers

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!

In Honor of The Big Read todays book is...
The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by, Carson McCullers Page 246-
"One thing I've thought about," Mick said."A boy has a better advantage like that than a girl.I mean a boy can usually get a part-time job that don't take him out of school and leave him time for other things.But there's not jobs like that for girls.When a girl wants a job she has to quit school and work full time.I'd sure like to earn a couple bucks a week like you do, but there's just no way."


  1. Good teaser. I've never read this one. Carson McCullers was a fine writer, but always a little too bleak for me, I'm afraid.

  3. Brilliant teaser. I have not read this book, so I am adding it to my TBR list. Here is mine: http://rundpinne.blogspot.com/2009/10/nine-dragons-teaser-tuesdays.html

  4. I haven't read this; but it does sound quite interesting. My teaser is here.

  6. I've never read this book but have always wanted to. I need to check it out...good teaser!!
