These circuses … Teaser Tuesday 1

These circuses … Teaser Tuesday 1

I just finished reading this book of short stories titled ‘These Circuses that Sweep through our Landscape’.  Tejaswini Apte-Rahm has put together 10 short stories full of excellent writing.  The review will be up soon.


Here are my two teaser lines from one of the stories.  It was a bit difficult to choose.  But I choose this one for the vivid images and passion it creates in just a few words.

Mili was arriving in Bombay on the twenty-third of August….Even before my hand reached for the mouse, my mind was filled with luscious images of Mili, of days filled with conversations and hot chai, of moist nights and pulsing, never sated desire.

Don’t get your hopes up.  Nothing happens of the sort.  All the images are in the mind only.  Quite a teaser, isn’t it?

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by  A House of Books and has pretty simple rules…If you want to know how Teaser Tuesday Works, here’s how:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page
• Share the title and author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!
