Teaser Tuesdays - The Panopticon

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. 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 & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

So far this book is very different from what I expected from the cover and the back cover story which made it sound like a mystery (which it isn't so far), but it's an intriguing read. For those who are sensitive about f-words and such: there are a lot of them in this book.

'D'ye never find a family you liked, Anais?'
'Families are overrated. They're like elephants.'
'Elephants are sound, aye, with their big ears and that,' John says.
(page 63, The Panopticon by Jenni Fagan)
