Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- 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 and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
Teaser Tuesday #41 – Grendel
Grendel – John Gardner
The first and most terrifying monster in English literature, from the great early epic Beowulf, tells his side of the story in a book William Gass called “one of the finest of our contemporary fictions.”

I’m reading Grendel for my Romance and Its Remediation class, and I have to do an in-class presentation next week. It’s rather interesting to read a whole novel from Beowulf’s monster’s point of view.
What’s your teaser today? Please share – it’s not as if a few more books on my TBR mountain will make that big of a difference 😉
