Teaser Tuesdays: Immoveable Feast, by John Baxter

Teaser Tuesday asks readers to:

  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given.

We had once – not an experience to be repeated – even taken them to an Australian restaurant that served kangaroo.
