Welcome to another edition of Teaser Tuesday! This week I am reading The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson. It’s about Nombeko Mayeki, a girl born in a South Africa shack in 1961, who is destined to be more than the latrine cleaner life she was born into. Here is the snippet!
“On the foreign-affairs front, he was deeply irritated by that dullard Brezhnev in Moscow. Who was succeeded by that dullard Andropov. Who was succeeded by Chernenko, the biggest dullard of them all. But luckily, Chernenko didn’t have time to do more than take office before he stepped down permanently. The rumour was that Ronald Reagan had scared him to death with his Star Wars.” (95)
