The teaser is from page 95 of the large print version:
I started walking again, picking my way over the broken sidewalk, my chin high. Mrs. DuPree might have the money for a second boardinghouse, but this neighbourhood was where she lived. Mrs. DuPree was on her way down, I told myself, but the next Mrs. DuPree - me - was on her way up.
