Teaser Tuesday – The Paper Door


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

  1. Grab your current read
  2. Open to a random page
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I am currently reading a collection of short stories by Naoya Shiga called  The Paper Door. I have just finished reading this book.

My teaser comes from page 136, a short story called Kuniko.

What were Kuniko’s emotions when she killed herself? That is what I’ve thought about. I am utterly unable to grasp what they were.
