Teaser Tuesdays #11 - 2015 Giller Prize (Week 4)

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. 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 (some times you need more than two for it to make sense).
  • 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!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
Week 4 of my 2015 Giller Prize feature is a teaser from Daydreams of Angels by Heather O'Neill. Enjoy!

Title: Daydreams of Angels
Author: Heather O'Neill
Publisher: Biblioasis
Publishing Date: September 29, 2015 (Originally published in September 2014)
Genre: Fiction

The old man had spent his whole life in this neighbourhood. when he was younger and met girls in the big dance halls downtown, he wouldn't tell them that he lived in Little Burgundy. It had always been working class and poor. And it was literally downhill and on the other side of the tracks. A girl would look for a boy from Westmount or Outremont if she had any sense, not a boy from this part of town. (p235)

Only one week to go! November 10 is the big day. Who is your favourite to win this year's Giller Prize?
