The Tiger's Wife (Paperback)

Tea Obreht

-  

After a tiger escaped from the local zoo during a German bombing in April 1941, the villagers were both enthralled and terrified by his nocturnal visits. But for one young boy, the tiger was a thing of magic, a real life Shere Khan. Natalia is that boy's granddaughter and when she hears of her grandfather's death in mysterious circumstances, she realises he may have died searching for 'the deathless man', a drifter who was said to be immortal. But why would a man of science undertake such a quest? It's up to Natalia to find out as she stumbles upon a clue that will lead her first to a tattered copy of The Jungle Book, and then to the extraordinary story of The Tiger's Wife. A wonderful and unusual novel from Tea Obreht that won the Orange Prize for Fiction in 2011.
