TIGER: An Evening With Polly Clark
May 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Golden Hare Books is delighted to host the Edinburgh launch for the breathtaking new novel from Polly Clark, the prize-winning author of Larchfield in the beautiful surroundings of The Scottish Gallery on Dundas Street.
Frieda is a primatologist, sensitive and solitary, until a violent attack shatters her ordered world. In her new role as a zookeeper, she confronts a very different ward: an injured wild tiger.
Deep in the Siberian taiga, Tomas, a Russian conservationist, fears that the natural order has toppled. The king tiger has been killed by poachers and a spectacular tigress now patrols his vast territory as her own.
In a winter of treacherous competition, the path of the tigress and her cub crosses with an Udeghe huntress and her daughter. Vengeance must follow, and the fates of both tigers and people are transformed.
Learning of her tiger’s past offers Frieda the chance of freedom. Faced with the savage forces of nature, she must trust to her instinct and, like the tiger, find a way to live in the world.
— Laline Paull, author of The Bees
