Teaser Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. All you have to do is open your current read at a random page and share two sentences. Please avoid spoilers and include the name and author of your book so others can make note or the book if they wish.
Mine this week comes from Cosmopolis by Don DeLillo. I have just finished The Body Artist by the same author and was fascinated by this author's style so have embarked on another of his novels. This teaser is from page 43 of Cosmopolis:
He looked past Ingram while the doctor listened to his heart valves open and close. The car moved incrementally westward. He didn't know why stethoscopes were still in use. They were lost tools of antiquity, quaint as blood-sucking worms. p43
Cosmopolis is very different to The Body Artist. It has a sparse coldness to it that is quite unsettling. Hopefully I will finish it and have a review up over the next few days.
