This week I have two teasers. One from the novel I’m reading and one from the nonfiction work I’m reading. Enjoy!
“Not encouraging, I own,” said Fairway, ” ‘Get out of my sight, you slack-twisted, slim-looking maphrotight fool,’ is rather a hard way of saying No. But even that might be overcome by time and patience, so as to let a few grey hairs show themselves in the hussy’s head.”
pg. 32, The Return of the Native, by Thomas Hardy
“The real saga of God, the Founding Fathers, and the making of a nation is a tale that opens with swashbuckling adventurers searching for gold in Virginia and sturdy but strict Puritans trying to create a Christian commonwealth in New England. The drama is America’s drama, from George Washington to Ronald Reagan, from the Civil War to civil rights.”
