Teaser Tuesday's - The Hand That First Held Mine

Teaser Tuesday's is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading. To play along, just do the following:

- Grab your current read

- Open to a random page

- Share two “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 list if they like your teaser.

My teaser this week is from page 7 of Maggie O'Farrell's The Hand That First Held Mine:
Art is not a background for Innes.  It is what he breathes, what makes life continue; he looks and he doesn't see a tree, a car, a street, he sees a potential still-life, he sees an interplay of light and shade and colour, he sees a deliberate arrangement of chosen objects.


  1. He sounds like a great character!

  2. Sounds like an interesting book for anyone with an interest in photography or art. When I used to paint, I'd look at the sky and in my mind think how I would paint it.

    Here's ours: http://ourstack.blogspot.com/2012/01/teaser-tuesday-unwind-and-lamb.html

  3. Wonderful teaser about how an artist sees.
