Where Are You? / Teaser Tuesday: A Separate Country by Robert Hicks


New Orleans. Summer. Yellow fever. There are few of us who can escape the heat, and those of us who can are regarded with suspicion, with a touch of fear. I like the life of an iceman, and I like the slim Irish lass who shares my bed. The war's been over 14 years, but I still struggle with my sins. Then, yesterday, the letter was slipped under my door. Could I deny General John Bell Hood—the man I once wanted to murder—his dying wish?

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.


But he was out of his mind and tore at the bedclothes I tried to draw over him. He grabbed me by the back of the neck and pulled my face down to his so that those hard, blue, stone eyes were all I could see. They looked into me as if I'd stolen something and hidden it in my skull. (p. 18)


—Both from A Separate Country by Robert Hicks (to be published September 2009)
