“The shack door was open, which he thought he had shut.
There was no crying, not a sound.
And there was no baby.”
This Teaser Tuesday comes from View from Castle Rock by Alice Munro.
“A massive die-off of the human race was impending, due to over-population and wickedness, but the Gardners exempted themselves: they intended to float above the Waterless Flood, with the aid of the food they were stashing away in the hidden storeplaces they called Ararats. As for the flotation devices in which they would ride out this flood, they themselves would be their own Arks, stored with their own collections of inner animals, or at least the names of those animals. Thus they would survive and replenish the Earth. Or something like that.”
This Teaser Tuesday comes from The Year of the Flood by Margaret Atwood.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!
