I’m currently reading A Dictionary of Mutual Understanding by Jackie Copleton, which is set in Japan and is narrated by a woman who lost her daughter and grandson in the horrific bombing of Nagasaki in 1945. I’ve read about 40 pages so far, and it’s promising to be a very good read – although there have been some harrowing scenes.
Here are my two teaser sentences taken at random from p24…
“What survivors saw differs in the telling. To some, the explosion was like a giant pulsating chrysanthemum, a thousand boiling clouds of purple and cream and pink, or it was a giant tree ablaze, shooting high into the sky, or yes, it was shaped like a mushroom, collapsing into itself and then rising away.”
If you’ve published a teaser today, feel free to link to it here!
