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. For more teasers, click on through to MizB's blog.
Today's tease comes from a hard-hitting, emotional memoir. To learn more about "a family's legacy of writing, drinking, and surviving," stop back for this week's Imprint Friday feature.
The night I was born my father was boozing at a club in Hollywood. The next day he played golf. It took forty-eight hours before he finally made an appearance at the hospital.
