Teaser Tuesday and Where Are You? 02-16-10: Possession: A Romance

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 Possession: A Romance by A.S. Byatt, page 162:
He was then seized with doubt as to whether the bathroom was in fact empty....He did not want to rattle a locked door and embarrass both her and himself, so he went down on one knee on the putative drugget and put his eye to the huge keyhole which glinted at him and disconcertingly vanished as the door swung back and he smelled wet, freshness, steam in cold air. She nearly fell over him there; she put out a hand to steady herself on his shoulder and he threw up a hand and clasped a narrow haunch under the silk of the kimono.

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

I'm mostly in London with occasional trips to Yorkshire to investigate a 19th century poet and his illicit love affair.
