Teaser Tuesdays

MizB of Should Be Reading hosts this cool weekly event. Grab your current read. Let the book fall open to a random page. Share (2) “teaser” sentences from that page. Share the title & author of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser. Please avoid spoilers!
This teaser is from Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck:
Out of his great heart he drew a compelling oratory, a passionate
plea for those little children who had no beans. And so telling was
his speech that the fire in his heart ignited the hearts of his friends.

As soon as I saw Steinbeck's name, I knew the teaser was going to be good. There's just something about his writing...

Meanwhile, my own teaser is at Bookishgal

I really enjoyed The Grapes of Wrath, but I've never read this one. He was a wonderful writer, wasn't he? Good teasers!
