Teaser Tuesday: St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading where you share a random snippet of your latest book.  This week my teaser is from the short story Z. Z.'s Sleep-Away Camp for Disordered Dreamers included in the collection titled St. Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves by Karen Russell:

"Emma and I are curled together in the basket of the Thomas Edison Insomnia Balloon, our breath coming in soft quick bursts.  I am stroking Emma's cheek.  I am spooning amber gobs of soporific dough into Emma's open mouth, cadged from Zorba's medicinal larder in anticipation of just such an occassion." ---pg. 49 


  1. I like the teaser! Plus that cover and title are fantastic. Thanks for sharing! :)

    My teaser is here.

  2. Between the cover and your teaser I am quite intrigued.

  3. I've never been much of a short-story reader, although I wish I could give them more of a chance. How fun is that cover, though? LOVE IT. That cover might be enough to make me do the short-story thing...


  4. I'm always looking for good short stories. Thanks. MyTeaser Tuesday!
