Teaser Tuesdays

MizB of Should Be Reading hosts Teaser Tuesdays. 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 CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! You don't want to ruin the book for others.
*Share the title and author too, so other TT participants can add it to their TBR lists if they like your teaser.

Here's mine from Scorpions: The Battles & Triumphs of FDR's Great Supreme Court Justices by Noah Feldman (p. 3):

The mingled smells of oiled mahogany paneling, polished brass, and good tobacco were familiar ones to Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Folding his slim frame into a leather-upolostered chair in the new, three-story clubroom of the Harvard Club of New York, the recent graduate was exactly where he belonged.

Maybe I'll follow up Christopher Buckley's Supreme Court book with this one to balance my brain!
