Teaser Tuesday: All that I am by Anna Funder

I am getting a slightly early start to the Australian Women Writers Challenge of 2012 and the Aussie Author challenge by reading All that I am by Anna Funder.

The teaser comes from page 1:

When Hitler came to power I was in the bath. Our apartment was on the Schiffbeuerdamm near the river, right in the middle of Berlin. From its windows we could see the dome of the parliament building. The wireless in the living room was turned up loud so Hans could hear it in the kitchen, but all that drifted down to me were waves of happy cheering, like a football match. It was Monday afternoon.

Teaser Tuesday is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. Head on over to find out all about it, and how to join in! 


  1. Not saying anything (read this a couple of months back) ;)

  2. I haven't heard of this one yet but it sounds interesting! Thanks for sharing.

    Here's my teaser for this week.

    Books, Biscuits & Tea

  3. I like that teaser. I haven't heard of the book, but I'm intrigued.

    Merry, merry Christmas and happy new year, Marg!

  4. If there was happy cheering, it probably wasn't the Browns game.

    Here's ours:

  5. Very interesting teaser. I am curious to find out how the cheering eventually turned into weeping, though I already know the story!

  6. Great teaser! I haven't heard of Anna Funder, but I'm way behind on Aussie authors since living overseas so long. They're hard to get hold of here. Otherwise, I'd be tempted by that challenge.
