Teaser Tuesdays #12 - 2015 Giller Prize Edition (Week 5)

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!
The final edition of my 2015 Giller Prize feature Fifteen Dogs by André Alexis.

Title: Fifteen Dogs
Author: André Alexis
Publisher: Coach House Books
Publishing Date: April 14, 2015 (Originally published on March 23, 2015)
Genre: Fiction

Olympus, the city, lies atop Olympus, the mountain. Much more than that cannot be said because it is, as any city is, a correlative of the minds that made it. Travel through Olympus would be revelation of the imagination that conceived the city. That imagination being divine, no human language can express it. (p91)

Tonight is the night! The winner of the 2015 Giller Prize will be announced at the gala this evening. Which of the nominees was your favourite?


  1. hmm. interesting! thanks for sharing! Trish  - my teaser

  2. Thanks for sharing. Do you have a favorite for the prize? This week my teaser comes from Dark Turns by Cate Holahan. Happy reading!

  3. I am not sure about the teaser, but the concept of the book is rather unique, isn't it? I'm curious now--dogs with human consciousness. Hmm.

    I am afraid I don't really follow any of the literary awards. A quick look at the shortlist for the award and I'm afraid to say I haven't heard of any of the books nominated.

  4. It will be interesting to see if this one wins. My teaser is a non-fiction book that I think is an important document for women especially to read: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-115
