Teaser Tuesday - If Beale Street Could Talk


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, 
hosted by MizB of Should be Reading.

"You see: I know him. He's very proud, and he worries a lot, and when I think about it, I know-he doesn't-that that's the biggest reason he's in jail. He worries too much already, I don't want him to worry about me. In fact, I didn't want to say what I had to say. But I knew I had to say it. He had to know."

Have you read any James Baldwin? This is my second book of his I've gotten into - so far - so good!

Thoughts?

  11. I haven't read Baldwin either, but I went back to re-read your tease. Doesn't he already know he's in jail so he'll already be worried about it? How could you not be worried if you were in jail? I'd better get the bigger picture. Here's Mine

  12. I think his reason in jail would be criminal choices, not being proud or worried.
