A brilliant saga of family legend, loss, and love, Téa Obreht’s debut novel The Tiger’s Wife follows a young doctor in war-torn Yugoslavia as she strives to unravel the mystery of her grandfather’s death, and to understand why, in his last days, he went looking for a mythical figure called “the Deathless Man.” Obreht has been named by The New Yorker as one of the Top 20 Writers under 40 and included in the National Book Foundation’s list of “5 Under 35.”
“The Tiger’s Wife is a marvel of beauty and imagination. Téa Obreht is a tremendously talented writer.”
—Ann Patchett

“Téa Obreht is the most thrilling literary discovery in years.”
—Colum McCann, author of Let the Great World Spin

“[Obreht] has a talent for subtle plotting that eludes most writers twice her age, and her descriptive powers suggest a kind of charmed genius. No novel this year has seemed more likely to disappoint; no novel has been more satisfying.”
—The Wall Street Journal
