Teaser Tuesday: Lion's Honey by David Grossman

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
1. Grab your current read.
2. Open to a random page.
3. Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
4. 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!).
5. Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:
          And maybe this is what motivates Samson, and not only in this instance. He goes through life like a walking enigma, marveling over his secret, his riddle. He enjoys approaching the dangerous brink of being found out by others. Yet, on second thoughts, this word 'enjoys' is inaccurate: more likely he is driven to this: compelled to confront this feeling, this bitter-tasting knowledge that he is impenetrable, that he cannot be released from his strangeness, nor from the mystery within. - pg. 69, Lion's Honey: The Myth of Samson by David Grossman
