Two memes today! They'll both be from Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane.
It's Tuesday...Where are you? is hosted by an adventure in reading. I'm looking for an escaped inmate on Shutter Island, off the coast of Massachusetts, in 1954. This is what Georges Island, one of the real islands in the area, looks like.
But I keep picturing Alcatraz. If you ever get a chance to go there, you should!
Teaser Tuesday is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.
"With the leaps--and there are leaps going on, don't kid yourself, leaps every day--happening in the field of mental health, a place like this will cease to exit. Barbaric they'll call it twenty years from now. An unfortunate by-product of the bygone Victorian influence. And go it should, they'll say. Incorporation, they'll say. Incorporation will be the order of the day. You are all welcomed into the fold. We will soothe you. Rebuild you. We are all General Marshalls. We are a new society, and there is no place for exclusion. No Elbas."
What's your teaser? Where has your reading taken you this week?
