Well, the coverage is everywhere for Tea Obreht and her fine new novel The Tiger’s Wife. With luck, you’ve seen DH’s triptych of reflective reviews and read his interview with TO. If that’s not enough, here are a few more quotes to entice you:
- “A novel of surpassing beauty, exquisitely wrought and magical. Tea Obreht is a towering new talent.” — T.C. Boyle
- “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
- “[Obrent] writes with remarkable authority and eloquence, and she demonstrates an uncommon ability to move seamlessly between the gritty realm of the real and the more primary-colored world of the fable.” — Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
- “Tea Obreht fuses mystery, middle-European myth and the dismal realities of civil war to bring The Tiger’s Wife, her amazing first novel, to life.” Kit Reed, Chicago Sun-Times
Happy now? Not as happy as you’ll be when you finally pick a copy and read it. To that end, the gracious folks at Random House have provided Three Guys One Book five copies to give away to our readers. To win a copy simply comment on this post, and I’ll pick five winners at random on Monday morning.
