Claudia Hampton is dying. As memories crowd in, she re-creates the mosiac of her life, her own story enmeshed with those of her brother, her lover and father of her daughter, and the centre of her life, Tom, her one great love both found and lost in the "mad fairyland" of war-torn Egypt.

Review:


"A powerful, moving and beautifully wrought novel about the ways in which lives are molded by personal memory and the collective past." --"Boston Globe"
"Emotionally, "Moon Tiger" is kaleidoscopic, deeply satisfying. The all too brief encounter between Claudia and Tom will surely rate as one of the most memorable of contemporary fictional affairs. This is one of the best novels I have read for years." --"The London Sunday Telegraph"
"It pulls us in; it engages us and saddens us. It is also unexpectedly funny . . . It leaves its traces in the air long after you've put it away." --"The New York Times Book Review"
