This week I'm starting The View From Penthouse B by Elinor Lipman.
Since Edwin died, I have lived with my sister Margot in the Batavia, an Art Deco apartment building on beautiful West Tenth Street in Greenwich Village. This arrangement has made a great deal of sense for us both: I lost my husband without warning, and Margot lost her entire life's savings to the Ponzi schemer whose name we dare not speak.Also this week is Teaser Tuesdays. Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Open to a random page of your current read h and share a teaser sentence from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers. Here's my teaser from page 35:
Margot said, "We only need a minute." As soon as he was gone, she said, "Do you love him? What if we put a bed in the storeroom? He can put his stuff in the pantry drawer."This is described as a sister story. Hope it's good.
Great choice! I'm waiting to get a copy of this one from the library.
Here's my Tuesday intro:
I like Elinor Lipman and this intro makes me want to read mere as well -- enjoy. Thanks for joining us this week.
Yes, yes, yes... I'd keep reading! I'm on the hold list and will be getting this from my library eventually.
