Teaser Tuesday and Where Are You? 08-25-09: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay

Should Be Reading - Miz B - hosts this weekly event. We throw out a couple of sentences from our current read (without spoilers, of course) to entice you to read the book.


This week my teaser is from The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon, page 61:
Finally, Josef had to reach into the coffin and grasp the Golem around the waist, elevating its lower body several inches, before Kornblum could tug the trousers over the feet, up the legs, and around the Golem's rather sizable buttocks. They had decided not to bother with underwear, but for the sake of anatomical versimilitude - in a display of the thoroughness that had characterized his career on the stage -- Kornblum tore one of the old tallises in two (kissing it first), gave a series of twists to one of the halves, and tucked the resulting artifact up between the Golem's legs, into the crotch, where there was only a smooth void of clay.



It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.

I'm in Brooklyn, 1939, having arrived in a circuitous route from Czechoslovakia to Lithuania, Russia, Japan and San Francisco. I'll soon be making my debut in the comic book industry.
