Teaser Tuesday: Wisconsin Death Trip

Teaser TuesdaysTeaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

In keeping with my October Extravaganza theme, my teaser this week is from a book that’s a bit of a cult classic in my circles – Wisconsin Death Trip, a compilation by Michael Lesy.

It was those first, early fires that probably reminded the more respectable of the respectable to look to their souls as well as their mortgages lest they wake one morning and find themselves tested by a blaze more devilish and infernal than any set by a sneak thief firebug. People say that the first preacher that the town hired didn’t work out too well.

(What’s the October Extravaganza, you ask? Why, it’s my month-long celebration of October, Hallowe’en, and all things creepy! I’m reviewing a book (or comic, or game, or movie) a day for the month of October, culminating in a Hallowe’en Read-a-Thon on the weekend itself! Check out the rest of my blog or click on the image below for details.)
