Teaser Tuesday 11-25-08 : The Elegance of the Hedgehog


Should Be Reading - Miz B - hosts this weekly event. We throw out a couple of sentences from our current read to entice you to read the book!


From The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery, page 81:

He's sniffling noisily, expediting his nasal runoff to a place it never came from, and I am obliged, by the speed of his gesture, to witness the feverish contractions of his Adam's apple working to assist the passage of said nasal secretion. It is repulsive but above all disconcerting.
