Picture of The Tiger In The Tiger Pit

The Tiger In The Tiger Pit

Like the rare Blue Wanderer butterfly, Emily Carpenter is never still for long. She flees emotional commitment, despite the longing of her eight-year-old son for family and for the easygoing sheepfarmer with whom she once found peace. While Emily's eccentric mother works to reunite her scattered children, her once tyrannical father, made 'irritable as the tiger in the tiger pit" by old age and regret, does his own scheming. The scene is set for dramatic confrontation and unexpected revelations. In this her second novel Janette Turner Hospital explores her fascination with the interweaving of time and place and displays the superlative skills as a storyteller that have won awards and critical acclaim for all six of her published books.
