Teaser Tuesday: A Master of Djinn by P. Djèlí Clark


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by The Purplebooker.

Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
 Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
 BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Archibald James Portendorf disliked stairs. With their ludicrous lengths, ever leading up, as if in some jest. There were times, he thought, he could even hear them snickering. (1% through on my Kindle)

A Master of Djinn by P. Djèlí Clark is expected to be published May 11th, 2021 by Tordotcom. The teaser comes from an ARC. As such, the teaser may differ in content and location in the final copy.

Would you keep reading? What's your teaser this week? Share it or a link in the comments. Are you enjoying your book? Let us know! Happy Reading!


  1. I can relate to his feelings about stairs! LOL. Sounds good. Here's mine: “THE SMASH-UP”

    1. The older I get the more I understand that perspective on stairs. Hope you enjoy The Smash-up!
