From Friday Nights by Joanna Trollope
"All those years of training--linguistics, psychology. a dissertation on workplace behavioral patterns--never quite, it appeared, anesthetized her against sheer human nastiness, however small and slight its manifestations. You could try to understand, it seemed, why people behaved the way they did until you were blue in the face, but it still didn't prevent you from being cast down, almost diminished, when those same people chose to interpret your efforts to assist them as gross interference, only to be punished by malevolence."
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly book 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.
Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away!
Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers.
