This week's teaser comes from page 158 of Norwegian author Per Petterson's Out Stealing Horses:
He ran back and threw himself onto his motorbike and immediately stamped hard on the start pedal, but damn it the motor would not start, and he tried again and again and again and then once more, and it suddenly came to life like a shot, and he bent over the handlebars and roared down the farm road and swerved on to the main road with the empty sidecar rattling on the outside in a spray of snow. Coming round that very bend was Jon, on his way home from school with his school bag under his arm, and he heard the motorcycle, and only just managed to throw himself into the ditch to avoid being run over and maybe injured for life.
Phew...long sentences! And I have to say even though I am 75 pages in I have no idea what is going on. I know who Jon is but I have no idea who 'he' is. Guess I will just have to keep reading!
