Staff Reviews


This multifaceted novel is a treasure from one of the New Yorker's 20 under 40. A doctor living in an unnamed country searches for answers regarding the death of her grandfather whom she suspects was in search of a legendary deathless man. This is gorgeous storytelling that walks a very precarious tightrope, acrobatic and thrilling in the moment, pensive and profound in afterglow. In a word, exquisite. — Erik Barnum

March 2011 Indie Next List


“Very rarely does a first novel announce a major new talent, but so it is with The Tiger's Wife. Brilliantly using myth and legend from the Balkans, Tea Obreht tells the story of a young doctor, her grandfather, and their shared history against the backdrop of the area's decades of turmoil and sorrow. This brilliant effort evokes echoes of Borges and Garcia Marques, and is certain to mesmerize the reader.”
