Teaser Tuesday: Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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
* 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!

"Ye mun find them yourself, Robert Poste's child. I have my task to do and my watch to keep, and I cannot run here and there to fetch newspapers for a capsy wennet."

Nearly 80 years after it was first published, Cold Comfort Farm remains one of the funniest novels of the 20th century. Gibbons' hilarious parody of DH Lawrence, Thomas Hardy, Mary Webb and other authors writing 'rural' novels has quotable moments on nearly ever page.
