Review

PRAISE FOR The Last Tiger: 

'A beautiful, powerful tale to move the hardest heart.' THE SUN 

'A compelling and convincing portrayer of raw emotions in a vicious milieu.' THE TIMES

'Unexpected, moving and magical. A new direction for Tony Black, and a bold one too.' Emlyn Rees, International bestseller 

'A rare and heartfelt fable of an immigrant boy torn between his fears for an endangered species and the father who's employed to kill off what remains of that breed.' Paul Sayer, Whitbread-winning author 

'It's great, a real departure from the dark arts of crime fiction but a successful one as it creates a genuinely engaging picture of strangers in a strange land, as well as carving a haunting space between historical reality and timeless fable.' Nick Barlay, Granta 'Best of Young British Novelists' 


"Striking, wildcard originality."
-SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

"Black does such an excellent job of showing the tigers in the wild and making them seem real, important and wonderfully strange ... It's a pretty impressive recreation of an animal we know very little about."
-THE GUARDIAN 

"Very well executed ... Delivered with insight, this tale of society's outsiders is poignant and moving."
-THE BIG ISSUE

"The Last Tiger will bruise your heart and prowl in your mind. A lyrical, mystical masterpiece."
-CREATIVE NOVOCAINE
