Tuesday Teasers: Wolf Hally by Hilary Mantel

Tuesday Teasers is hosted by Should Be Reading. The rules are as follows:

Grab your current read and let the book fall open to a random page and share two sentences from somewhere on that page as well as the title and author of the book. Please avoid spoilers! Read the official Tuesday Teaser Rules.

My teaser this week is from Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel. From page 99:

'When in Italy he had picked up a snake for a bet, he had to hold it till they counted ten. They counted, rather slowly, in the slower languages: eins, zwei, drei ... At four, the startled snake flicked its head and bit him.'
