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!
Here are my teasers for this week:
While other Italian players in Glasgow went around in beautiful suits, he hung around in tracksuits with Scottish players, notes Gabriele Marcotti, coauthor of The Italian Job with Gianluca Vialli. Gattuso left Scotland after only one year, but with a souvenir: his future wife, Monica, whose father owned his favorite Glaswegian pizzeria.
