TIGER reviews

“Fierce, elegant, and compelling as the tiger itself, TIGER is less a novel than the very force of nature caught in fiction. Grabbed me by the imagination and carried me into the wilds of animal and human nature”
Laline Paull, author of The Bees

Siberia — a last wilderness and the backdrop to TIGER

The Siberian tiger is the largest cat on earth. Maintaining a territory of up to 500 square miles in one of the harshest environments in the world requires an epic memory and ruthless punishment of all infractions. Creating fear of reprisal is as important to the tiger’s success as actually carrying it out. I was intrigued by how this characteristic of the Siberian tiger has defined both animal and human societies in the region. I had to visit this tiger’s habitat, and experience the extremes of temperature and scarcity that it has evolved to dominate.
