The Panopticon

Zitat
"It's in the Margaret Attwood/The Handmaid's Tale vein - very literary and suspenseful.Set in an altered reality - one that feels familiar and yet deeply unfamiliar, that embodies some of the dailiness of life, and yet slowly reveals itself to be a very different, much more sinister place." -- Gillian Flynn, Author Of Gone Girl "Each page sparkles with the ebullient and sinister magic of great storytelling ... An utterly magnificent achievement." Irvine Welsh "Not just uncompromising and courageous. I think it's one of the most cunning and spirited novels I've read for years... An intelligent and deeply literary novel." -- Ali Smith "Written with great verve and brio ... An astonishing debut, I have a feeling that Fagan is a name we will hear more of." -- Jackie Kay "The 15-year-old heroine and narrator, has a rough, raw, joyous voice that leaps right off the page and grabs you by the throat.This punkish young philosopher is struggling with a terrible past, while battling sinister social workers.The glorious Anais is unforgettable."
