Teaser Tuesday – November 22, 2022 #NewBook #AQuietLife @JoellaWriting #TeaserTuesday #TuesdayBookBlog @ScribnerBooks

My Tuesday post where I’ll ‘tease‘ you with the cover, blurb, and first paragraph of one of the titles from my own TBR.

This book is a title I received from Scribner/Simon & Schuster via
Edelweiss and I’ll be reading it soon.

Today, Tuesday November 22, 2022 I want to introduce one of the ARCs on my TBR.

This novel will be published on November 29, 2022

Publisher: Scribner BooksISBN: 9781982190972 –  ASIN: B09RX4TJ9Y –  304 pages

1)  A hopeful novel about profound loss… intriguing.

2)  I wonder how the  three main characters lives will converge.

3) I’m interested in how individuals deal with grief and loss – and how smells evoke the deceased person more than any other sense.

4) I am enjoying literary fiction more and more and I’m eager to discover new (to me) authors.

“When Chuck Ayers thinks about Cat, he thinks about the faded yellow-and-white-striped towel that lately he has been wearing around his neck like a wrestler on his way to a match. That damned towel.”

Is this a title that you would consider adding to your TBR pile?

Why, or why not?

Let me know in the comments.

    This looks like a book that I could read. It’s about regular people dealing with regular issues. I must admit that the opening sentence doesn’t appeal to me and I have a darn inkling that in the end everything will go back to roses and moonshine, which in real life is mostly NOT the case. But writing a book without a happy ending is just not done in US literature.

    • You state many valid points, however I must disagree with you about the happy endings. I’ve read several novels where the ending is rendered very realistically. Either that or open-ended, where the author leaves the reader to decide how they think the book will end.
