Teaser Tuesday (27-4)

Oh, shame! I’ve been too occupied with being bedridden and working on papers to actually read this past week*, but here’s a teaser from one of my favorite books.

“Did they really try to burn down the paper?”

“Yes, they did,” I said, wondering if I’d heard this black lady in rural Mississippi just say that her first language was Italian.

(p. 66, The Last Juror by John Grisham)
*I have book comments forthcoming, but academics have been rather demanding. Still, the worst will be over by Thursday night.
