Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesday time! 

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
My teaser for today:
"He has spent a morning last winter, on one of his final days as a reporter, watching all the passengers of the HMS Sir Henry Pottinger, the whole scrofulous, dirty, stinking, weeping, freezing, wheezing, skinny, dazed, pale, half-naked lot of them.  Like every other New Yorker, he was accustomed to ignoring everyday misery, but his hour spent studying and counting those 423 Irish men, women, and children had shocked him into a kind of reverent dispair."

p. 117, "Heyday' by Kurt Andersen 
I just started reading this novel for my local library's January book club meeting.  The blurb on the front cover gives me high hopes for the book:

Heyday is a brilliantly imagined, wildly entertaining tale of America's boisterous coming of age -- a sweeping panorama of madcap rebellion and overnight fortunes, palaces and brothels, murder and revenge -- as well as the story of a handful of unforgettable characters discovering the nature of freedom, loyalty, friendship, and true love.
