If you fancy joining in, here’s how…
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two teaser sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!
• Share the title and author so other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

I very rarely read non-fiction – probably only two or three books a year, but I’m already on my second of the year (the first was Lion by Saroo Brierley) so maybe I’ll beat my usual total in 2017. My current non-fiction read is Room Full of Mirrors by Charles R Cross, which is an autobiography of Jimi Hendrix. I’m nearly finished with it, and have enjoyed it in the main. The two most interesting elements have been his upbringing, as he had really quite awful parents, and his rapid rise to fame the minute he set foot in London. 

Here are a few sentences taken at random from p111…


“No one on the scene was more impoverished than Jimi, and Fat Jack offered him a job hustling drugs. Jimi resisted that temptation and remained steadfast in his belief that music was to be his only calling in life.”

If you’ve published a teaser today, feel free to link to it here!

  1. It’s strange but I’m reading non fiction too – The Google Guys by Richard Brandt .
    I’ve been fascinated by Jimi Hendrix more by his persona and the angst he represented. Perhaps I will add this book to my TBR list .
