A Malaysian writer presently living in California with her family (and chickens), Yangsze Choo is back with the newly released paperback of her acclaimed most recent novel, The Night Tiger (Flatiron). A New York Times bestseller, a Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick, this novel set in colonial-era Malaya has been a hit with critics and readers both.
“Mythical creatures, conversations with the dead, lucky numbers, Confucian virtues, and forbidden love provide the backdrop to Choo’s superb murder mystery. Mining the rich setting of colonial Malaysia, Choo wonderfully combines a Holmes-esque plot with Chinese lore.” —Publishers Weekly.
“Richly complex … Gorgeous …Transport[s] us into a colonial world we more often see from the view of the occupier, in this transcendent tale about twins who share no blood, mythology and superstition, sibling rivalry, loyalty, forbidden love and identity.” —San Francisco Chronicle.
