Teaser Tuesday ~ The Power of Myth

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along. Just do the following:

* Grab the book you are currently reading.
* Open to a random page.
* Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
(Don't give too much away and spoil the book for others.)
* 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 sentences:
Moyers: After our youngest son had seen Star Wars for the twelfth or thirteenth time, I said, "Why do you go so often?" He said, "For the same reason you have been reading the Old Testament all your life." He was in a new world of myth.

-- from page 18 of The Power of Myth, by Joseph Campbell with Bill Moyers, 1988
