Teaser Tuesday: Delta Wedding

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme,  hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Basically, open the book you’re currently reading and share a couple of sentences from that page on your blog.   Avoid spoilers of course.

My teaser comes from a book that I am re-reading, Eudora Welty’s Delta Wedding.  This is one of many scenes where all sorts of relatives are gathered together and the conversation is rapidly bopping from one person to the next.

“I always thought Robbie was a very strenuous girl,” said Aunt Primrose hesitantly, looking up at George..

“She’s direct,” said Ellen.

“She has her cheek,” Tempe snapped, while Jim Allen was still asking pleadingly, “Who, who?”
