Currently I'm reading Colson Whitehead's alternate history novel, The Underground Railroad. My teaser is from page 235, where the character is thinking about the book Gulliver's Travels.

"The white man in the book, Gulliver, roved from peril to peril, each new island a new predicament to solve before he could return home. That was the man's real trouble, not the savage and uncanny civilizations he encountered — he kept forgetting what he had."

― The Underground Railroad
