Once your man has come out of your oven, you may have trouble hanging on to him. Men made this war are apt to take off down the road, on motorcycles or off them, robbing convenience stores, getting themselves tattooed, and hopping up and down and singing, “Run, run, as fast as you can, you can’t catch me, I’m the Gingerbread Man!” Attaching a string to his leg before the oven procedure may help, but — alas — in our experience, not for long. (pg. 40, Good Bones and Simple Murders by Margaret Atwood)

This collection is a reread for me, but one I always enjoy. The brief stories, poems and essays are always quirky, often funny.

Teaser Tuesdays is hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Play along. The rules are easy and I only cheated a little. Grab your current read, open to a random page, and give us two teaser sentences. Remember, no spoilers.

I was given my copy as a gift years ago and the above is my honest opinion. I am an Amazon associate.
