TIGERS are coming to a place near you!

Just a year ago, I was newly back from a trip to the Russian Far East to track tigers in the wild, and was hunkered down on my little houseboat as the story of wild people and wild animals that had pressed upon me for so long poured out. I was lost in the world of my own making, and truth be told, I was devastated to have to leave it, and send it into the world and away from me.

But publication of TIGER means I get to revisit that world and share it with other people. I’ll be back in it with high intensity — but not alone this time! I hope so much that you will join me at one of these events, which we have carefully put together to bring the tiger experience to as many people as possible.

TIGER is published May 2nd 2019. All these launch events are open to the public. Please come to one — or more! They are all different. Reserve your place via the link with each event, or for queries contact Elizabeth Ana: Elizabeth.ana@quercusbooks.co.uk

    Congratulations Polly. I look forward to reading Tiger – I loved Larchfield! And what an amazing cover… so beautiful. I’m sorry I’m not able to come to any of your launch events but when you come to London I’ll be up in Shropshire on holiday… Very happy to review Tiger on my blog if you would like me to. Ali x
