    I just finished this one. I’ll have to checkout the Twitter discussion.

  • I hope you have more luck than I am having with Wolf Hall. I am about 250 pages in and I can’t bring myself to pick it back up at this point.

    I am reading a wonderful book of historical fiction, “Dear Bob, Dear Betty,” which is a collection of letters from Bob and Betty, and their courtship and love during the Great Depression. It’s by their daughter (she does a lot of putting the letters in context of the times, so it’s way more than just the letters, which makes it fascinating) — and her father, Bob, is the son of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright. (Betty’s father was a friend of Wright’s and neither dad was any kind of good father at all.) So — this is Frank Lloyd Wright! So you get references like this, which I’m using for my teaser:

    [[You made an ultra-favorable impression upon my step-mother and she has directed me to ask you to attend the annual Halloween party at Taliesin, which occurs on the 29th of this month.35 I have never been to one of these parties myself and I am afraid that, due to the presence of numerous out of town guests, the overnight accommodations36 may be somewhat crowded but I would like very much to take a chance on liking it if you will.”

    Can you imagine what the annual Halloween party at Taliesin was like? Love this!

  • Ooooh. This book scared me off. I know it is supposed to be wonderful and everything, but I’m wondering if it is the best place to start for a historical fiction newbie like me.

  • I’ve heard great things about Wolf Hall. Enjoy.

    Here’s my teaser at arch thinking.

  • I like your teaser! I can’t wait to see the discussion on Twitter.

    Great teasers! Right now I’m thoroughly enjoying a book about a golfer entitled, “Straight Down the Middle,” which is the author’s personal memoir. Here’s a snippet or teaser for you: “I knew that my journey was bound to be filled with false
    starts, pitfalls, and facing up to the demons that haunt my golf
    game and my inner life. But I also knew that golf was a legitimate
    vehicle toward greater self-knowledge.”

  • Hey, I would love to be a part of the discussion. Will start reading it today itself…
