Teaser Tuesday: The Sleepwalker by Chris Bohjalian


Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Ambrosia of The Purplebooker.
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 and author so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
And so when the state police from the New Haven barracks were interviewing Paige and me later that morning while they waited for my father to fly home from Iowa City, they probed the possibility that our mother had run off or was having an affair. (location 409)
.........................................................................
It was infuriating and I felt my family was being violated. I understood why they had to ask, but that did not make this line of investigation seem any less absurd or, on some level I could not quite parse at the time degrading. (location 413)
Lianna and Paige are speaking to the state police because their mother has gone missing presumably during a bout of sleepwalking.
I'm not that far into the book yet, but I'm enjoying it. While these two sentences are very long, in general, the sentence length is varied.
The Sleepwalker by Chris Bohjalian is due out January 10, 2017 from Doubleday Books.
What's your teaser this week? Share it or a link in the comments. Are you enjoying your book? Let us know! Happy Reading!
