Review quote

"Stunning . . . a richly textured and searing novel."--Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times" "Spectacular . . . [Tea Obreht] spins a tale of such marvel and magic in a literary voice so enchanting that the mesmerized reader wants her never to stop. [Grade: ] A"--"Entertainment Weekly" "[Obreht] has a talent for subtle plotting that eludes most writers twice her age, and her descriptive powers suggest a kind of channeled genius. . . . No novel [this year] has been more satisfying."--"The Wall Street Journal" "Filled with astonishing immediacy and presence, fleshed out with detail that seems firsthand, "The Tiger's Wife "is all the more remarkable for being the product not of observation but of imagination."--"The New York Times Book Review" "That "The Tiger's Wife" never slips entirely into magical realism is part of its magic. . . . Its graceful commingling of contemporary realism and village legend seems even more absorbing."--"The Washington Post"show more
