Teaser Tuesday: Cleaning Nabokov's House

This week my teasers are from a debut novel by Leslie Daniels. It is called CLEANING NABOKOV'S HOUSE. I talked about it a little bit in my Sunday post and you can read that here if you'd like. The teaser sentences today are from a point in the book where the main character, Barb, is driving back from New York City after a meeting with Sotheby's where they gave their opinion of whether or not the index cards she found that make up a manuscript were authentic and did, in fact, belong to Vladimir Nabokov...

My teasers:

I pulled up one of the index cards in my mind's eye. Sometimes he wrote so fast that not a single i was dotted. he was going places. That was one of the elements of passion: urgency. He had no time for complacency, for boredom. Wasn't that a sure mark of genius? ~ page 114

Teaser Tuesday is hosted each week by MizB at Should Be Reading. Its a great way to get a glimpse into some great books!
