Teaser Tuesdays: Beowulf on the Beach

My contribution is coming in a bit late this evening, but Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

1. Grab your current read
2. Open to a random page
3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page (BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS!) Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Apart from that, you normally only hear people talking about how Dorothea's desire for the life of the mind - as a way out of the constricting gender roles of 19th-century England - led her to the disastrous marriage with the bloodless wanker Casaubon.
- p 250, Beowulf on the Beach by Jack Murnighan

And trust me, this book is funny (particularly if you've read a number of the books Murnighan writes about).
