Tuesday Teaser: 13 Ways of Looking at the Novel

Image“The most basic conviction of every novelist… is that things are not as they appear…Of Course, poets and dramatists frequently express it, but novelists must express it, because narrative point of view inherently delineates the contrast between what one person thinks and what others around him think.”-Jane Smiley, 13 Ways of Looking at the Novel

 

There is an in-depth review of the book on Open Letters Monthly.

 

This post is part of Teaser Tuesdays hosted by Should Be Reading.  

Here’s how it works: Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page

Don’t include spoilers
