Teaser Tuesday -- Jan. 7

For the Teaser Tuesday webmeme:

From: The Two Hotel Francforts by David Leavitt, page 53:

"Of all the ironclad arguments I had made against her staying in Europe, theone she had the hardest time refuting was that she was Jewis. On tis point she had always been touchy -- and not because she was anti-Semitic."

The author gets major surprise points for me that the sexual tension and euphoria is between the husbands. Their brief torrid affair (the novel takes place over a 2 week period) brought on by the need to escape the Nazi occupation (and inherent fear) was believable and not prurient in the least. All four characters are delightfully self-centered and amazingly self-absorbed.
