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 spoil the book for others.
*Share the title and author too, so other TT particpants can add it to their TBR lists if they like your teaser!

Here's mine from Leave It to Psmith by P. G. Wodehouse (p. 20)

Exhilaration is a heady drug; but, like other drugs, it has the disadvantage that its stimulating effects seldom last for very long. For perhaps ten minutes after his uncle had left him, Freddie Threepwood lay back in his chair in a sort of ecstasy. He felt, strong, vigorous, alert. Then by degrees, like a chilling wind, doubt began to creep upon him--faintly at first, then more and more insistently, till by the end of a quarter of an hour he was in a state of pronounced self-mistrust.

Leave it to PSmith sounds intriguing. Come on over to My Bookshelf to read my tease!

I'm loving these titles. I've never actually read a Wodehouse, and clearly I need to.

Here's mine:
