NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST - NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - "Spectacular . . . [Ta Obreht] spins a tale of such marvel and magic in a literary voice so enchanting that the mesmerized reader wants her never to stop."--Entertainment Weekly

Look for Ta Obreht's second novel, Inland, now available.

NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times - Entertainment Weekly - The Christian Science Monitor - The Kansas City Star - Library Journal

Weaving a brilliant latticework of family legend, loss, and love, Ta Obreht, the youngest of The New Yorker's twenty best American fiction writers under forty, has spun a timeless novel that will establish her as one of the most vibrant, original authors of her generation.

In a Balkan country mending from war, Natalia, a young doctor, is compelled to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding her beloved grandfather's recent death. Searching for clues, she turns to his worn copy of The Jungle Book and the stories he told her of his encounters over the years with "the deathless man." But most extraordinary of all is the story her grandfather never told her--the legend of the tiger's wife.

NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The Wall Street Journal - O: The Oprah Magazine - The Economist - Vogue - Slate - Chicago Tribune - The Seattle Times - Dayton Daily News - Publishers Weekly - Alan Cheuse, NPR's All Things Considered

"Stunning . . . a richly textured and searing novel."--Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"[Obreht] has a talent for subtle plotting that eludes most writers twice her age, and her descriptive powers suggest a kind of channeled genius. . . . No novel [this year] has been more satisfying."--The Wall Street Journal

"Filled with astonishing immediacy and presence, fleshed out with detail that seems firsthand, The Tiger's Wife is all the more remarkable for being the product not of observation but of imagination."--The New York Times Book Review

"That The Tiger's Wife never slips entirely into magical realism is part of its magic. . . . Its graceful commingling of contemporary realism and village legend seems even more absorbing."--The Washington Post

"Filled with astonishing immediacy and presence, fleshed out with detail that seems firsthand, The Tiger's Wife is all the more remarkable for being the product not of observation but of imagination."--The New York Times Book Review

"That The Tiger's Wife never slips entirely into magical realism is part of its magic. . . . Its graceful commingling of contemporary realism and village legend seems even more absorbing."--The Washington Post

"So rich with themes of love, legends and mortality that every novel that comes after it this year is in peril of falling short in comparison with its uncanny beauty."--Time

"Mesmerizing . . . [Tea] Obreht's striking ability to explain the world through stories is matched by her patience with the parts of life--and death--that endlessly confound us."--The Boston Globe

"Makes for a thrilling beginning to what will certainly be a great literary career."--Elle

"A compelling, persuasive writer, Obreht brings improbable elements to life on the page. Better, she makes them snap together with such magical skill that even the skeptical reader believes."--Chicago Sun-Times

"In Obreht's expert hands, the novel's mythology, while rooted in a foreign world, comes to be somehow familiar, like the dark fairy tales of our own youth, the kind that spooked us into reading them again and again."--O: The Oprah Magazine

"Obreht writes with an angel's pen . . . creating a skein of descriptive passages flush with apt details and ringing with lyrical diction about city life, country life, private dreams and public difficulties."--NPR's "All Things Considered"

"Gorgeous . . . one of the most extraordinary debut novels in recent memory."--Vogue

"Every word, every scene, every thought is blazingly alive in this many-faceted, spellbinding, and rending novel of death, succor, and remembrance."--Booklist (starred review)

"A spectacular accomplishment . . . written in a wry, classical, luxuriant style reminiscent of Tolstoy."--Marie Claire

"A beguiling blend of realism, myth and legend, this novel possesses a presence and force, essential ingredients for a novel that is very much rooted in reality yet transcends time."--Elizabeth Taylor, Chicago Tribune Editor's Choice

"Sentence by sentence, no fictional debut in 2011 was more arresting than this novel."--Cleveland Plain Dealer

Book Description:

'Ta Obreht is the most thrilling literary discovery in years' Colum McCann (and she's only 26!)
