Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesday: In the Sanctuary of Outcasts


I'm a nice-looking man with a beautiful wife and two great kids. I used to publish magazines, but now I pretend I'm an investigative reporter. It's one way to survive my year in jail. When the going got rough, I engaged in some creative financing. Now I live with my fellow convicts . . . and 130 leprosy patients.

For more Where Are You? answers, visit Raidergirl3 at An Adventure in Reading.



MizB at Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. Here's how it works: Grab your current read; let the book fall open to a random page; and share 2 “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.


An Asian man sat at a table in the middle of the cafeteria. He stared at me as I approached. A white growth completely covered one of his eyes. Between his two digitless hands, he balanced a pork chop. His good eye followed me as I walked.


—Both from In the Sanctuary of Outcasts by Neil White


EDIT: Apparently neither Powell's nor Indiebound has the book in stock. Look for it at Amazon.

okay, so that *was* a great tease, but the book sounds kinda morose; is it?! (I don't wanna read sad books! LoL)

Hope you're enjoying it, in any case

That teaser makes me want to grab the book. I like to read which are so much different!

Tuesdays: What's up?

I can pass up the fantasy (like Fire Study) but for some weird reason this book appeals to me. I like stories where people survive in situations like this.

Great teaser!

By the way, via the Indie link I got this message "Can't find the book".

Lisa 6/9/09, 9:24 AM  

Kinda creepy, but a great teaser! The books sounds interesting.

I haven't heard of this book but it sure sounds like something I would like. I'll be curious to know what you think when you're done with it.

What a sad situation. That's definitely a great teaser, but I'm not sure it's a book I could get through.

This teaser really makes me wonder about the book. I look forward to your thoughts on it.

Belle 6/9/09, 2:56 PM  

This book is definitely not for me, but what a great teaser, and your description of where you are as always puts me right there.

Jacqueline C 6/9/09, 3:01 PM  

Can't wait to hear what you think. Here's one tease and my other teaser.

I appreciate anyone who can work a pork chop creatively into their novel.
