Teaser Tuesdays: Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead by Sara Gran, again

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just open your current read to a random page and share a few sentences. Be careful not to include spoilers!


That’s right, you’re getting a repeat today. I teased you from this book two weeks ago, but this passage was too funny to me to skip. Enjoy.

The black alligator purse had been Constance’s. Supposedly it had been custom made for Constance in Paris by Mademoiselle herself. It was bigger on the inside than on the outside, and could get almost anything through an x-ray machine or a Geiger counter. It had pockets inside pockets, secrets inside secrets. The solution to approximately 17 mysteries could be found in this purse at any given moment. In a jam, it could unfold into a tent and I could live in it until circumstances improved.

As I said in my review of this book, there is a mystical element. Constance’s purse may very well actually unfold into a tent. I like these details. If you had a magic purse, what would you want it to do for you?


Be advised: I’m out of town, so you’re viewing pre-scheduled posts until April 9. I love your comments and will respond when I return! But I’ll be out of touch for a bit. Thanks for stopping by!
