Outcasts. Tea Obreht’s debut novel, The Tiger’s Wife, introduces her talent to readers with imaginative storytelling and memorable imagery. The youngest writer noted in The New Yorker’s latest 20-under-40 list, Obreht selects intriguing characters to develop: many are outcasts and all are involved in actions that are unusual. The threads of her narrative are filled with mythic elements and struggles with life and death. This unusual debut novel should appeal to those readers willing to try out new writers, and those who enjoy well-written fiction in which all the elements are not clearly resolved.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
