Here's this week's Teaser:
From Sarah Dunant's "In the Company of the Courtesan".
"From that night on, my lady sleeps in clean sheets, warmed by Meragosa's lies (told with the same gusto with which she delivered me the truth) and tended by a crippled, blind sparrow of a woman whose unctions and pastes smell so rancid that every time she arrives I can hardly wait to get out into the sour air of the city.
And thus do we come to live in Venice."
Now you!!

I completely forgot that I should have come prepared to this post with book in hand. Thank you so very much for your thoughts, Kirsten. 100 really is a milestone. Its been a fulfilling journey. You have been on my blog list for quite some time, but I just noticed that I haven't added myself to your followers widget. I get lost sometimes! If you notice lots of clicking I have a broken mouse which keeps opening up too many pages. Got to get this thing fixed.
All the best,
Catherine

Oh my! I have this book and want to read it soon. Please let me know how you like it so far.

Ms. K @ Write On Thyme said...

Ms. Lucy~ I will let you know. Am enjoying it so far! But not as much as The Birth of Venus! I still highly recommend that one.

This does sound interesting - I could read every word ever written on Venice, xv.

"the sour air of the city" ICK. What a marvelous description.

Vicky~ The more I read on it, the more I feel the same way!

Relyn~ She is actually quite amazing with her description! Be sure to read her Birth of Venus!
