Maybe it’s not the sort of book you would expect from someone best known for crime fiction but Tony Black‘s The Last Tiger is certainly just as tightly put together as his crime novels. A really lovely and rich story of childhood and being a stranger in a strange land.
Here’s the skinny:
‘Subject to a bidding war among several publishers in 2013, The Last Tiger is a remarkable book. Black has incorporated his page-turning crime style into a literary story that has much to tell us about alienation, persecution, loss, and the bonds of family. Set in the stark, sweeping landscape of Tasmania, this is a literary thriller from one of the UK’s finest authors.’
“An authentic yet unique voice, Tony Black shows why he is leading the pack…Atmospherically driven, the taut and sparse prose. Powerful.” – NEW YORK JOURNAL OF BOOKS
“A beautiful powerful tale to move the hardest heart.’ – THE SUN
