Teaser Tuesdays

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
Be sure 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 and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

“'Fiction is a painting,’ wrote Pearl, ‘biography is a photograph. Fiction is creation, biography is arrangement.’”

--From Pearl Buck in China, by Hilary Spurling

I am currently reading The Wine of Angels by Phil Rickman, recommended to me by my sister-in-law.

p 223: Merrily experienced a momentary illusion of being outside herself, as though nothing at all here was real, as though this was an enchanted village in a child's dream. It was a moment of strange relief.

This looks like a fun meme -

I'm reading No Biking in the House Without a Helmet, by Melissa Faye Greene.

p.120: I sat forward with my head in my hands. Adoption seems so theoretical, and fun, until you realize you will have to put one foot in front of the other in real time, through actual streets of a city with an impossibly exotic name, on a continent you've never been to, surrounded by people rapidly speaking in many languages of which you will understand not one word -
