• Be careful not to include spoilers!
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


Strange Places: A Memoir of Mental Illness
by Will Elliot

Strange Places (Will Elliot)

“In 2006 Will Elliott had his first novel The Pilo Family Circus published. It won five literary awards and great acclaim, nationally and internationally. What nobody knew was that the young author of that work of terrifying fantasy had just recovered from a psychotic episode and been diagnosed as a schizophrenic. This is his memoir of that harrowing — and enlightening — time.”


So, what’s everyone else reading at the moment? Go on, give us a tease…
