Teaser Tuesday: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

tuesteas

Hosted by A Daily Rhythm, Teaser Tuesday is a bookish meme meant to highlight passages from books you are currently reading.

Here are the rules (as described by A Daily Rhythm):

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

This week’s teaser is coming from my book club pick of the month, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce. Now I’ve never read any of Joyce’s works before and I’m honestly not sure how I feel about it yet. Stream of consciousness is kind of hard to get into. Check out this teaser for a little insight:

He was caught in the whirl of a scrimmage and, fearful of the flashing eyes and muddy boots, bent down to look through the legs.

Have you read any James Joyce? Like stream of consciousness in writing?

Let me know in the comments below!
