DJ´s Bait in the Box # 36


[Denne bog er desværre ikke oversat til dansk]

Using her last coins, my daughter bought this book in the airport and gave it to me. As you can see, it came in its own bait box. It is the author´s second, and I think it has traveled farther than I ever have.

“People are shouting and shining torches in my eyes. In the meantime, I´m hugging this big yellow-painted buoy like it´s Marilyn Monroe. A very fat Marilyn Monroe, after she took all the pills and went to seed. …

A guy with a really thick moustache and pizza breath is panting in my ear. He´s wearing a life vest and trying to peel my fingers away from the buoy. I´m too cold to move. He wraps his arms around my chest and pulls me backwards through the water. More people, silhouetted against the lights, take hold of my arms, lifting me on to the deck.


´Jesus, look at his leg!´ someone says.


´He´s been shot.´


Who are they talking about?”


The Rules:
If you recognize the quotation, or if you think you are able to guess who wrote it, please post a comment. Just leave a hint, do not spoil the fun by giving too much away.
The books will be reviewed on Saturdays in the future (as Friday is ABC day).

Oh, I think I recognize it, Dorte! My hint: The character has the same first name as a famous painter :).

Dorte H sagde ...

Margot: oh, I like that hint.

Uriah Robinson sagde ...

I have got Margot's hint probably because I am having my *** syringed out tomorrow. ;o)

Philip sagde ...

First name the same as that of a painter,as Margot says, and a last name that may be Hispanic, but is by no means necessarily so.

Dorte H sagde ...

Norman: good clue, but poor you!

Philip: quite right, yes :D

Louise sagde ...

Arh, no, I don't know this one ;o)

Louise: sorry, but then it is not exactly from round the corner :)

OK I think I know this one...author is perhaps from my neck of the woods...and used to be a ghost.

Dorte H sagde ...

Bernadette: yes indeed - a well-formulated ghost ;)
