Man Tiger

by Eka Kurniawan - £9.99  Verso Books (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781781688595 | ISBN 10: 1781688591

Longlisted for the Man Booker International Prize 2016
 
A wry, affecting tale set in a small town on the Indonesian coast, Man Tiger tells the story of two interlinked and tormented families and of Margio, a young man ordinary in all particulars except that he conceals within himself a supernatural female white tiger. The inequities and betrayals of family life coalesce around and torment this magical being. An explosive act of violence follows, and its mysterious cause is unraveled as events progress toward a heartbreaking revelation.
 
Lyrical and bawdy, experimental and political, this extraordinary novel announces the arrival of a powerful new voice on the global literary stage.
