Tiger, Tiger Paperback – July 22, 2008
"A deceptively slight, simple, haunting story, a meditation on a disintegrating family." -- William Georgiades, Los Angeles Times
"A page-turner . . . Craze writes the sort of direct, dry-eyed prose that elevates even the most mundane events into carefully observed drama." -- Ken Foster, Time Out New York
"Poetic . . . The perfect yarn for anyone riveted by the religious cult action now dominating the headlines." -- Sarah Z. Wexler, Marie Claire
"[An] exquisite new novel . . . Craze's gorgeous prose is all in the incisive detail. What emerges from Tiger, Tiger is a skillfully rendered, bittersweet family portrait: a loving but self-involved father; a mother striving to be the warm, caring mom she herself never had; and two children fending for themselves in a strange and sometimes brutal world, where innocence can be lost over and over again." -- Gabrielle Danchick, New York Post
"[Craze] gives May a delicate, distinctive voice. . . . [Here] the trials of adolescence don't stand a chance against the absurdity of grown-ups." -- Kirkus Reviews

This book reminded me of another favorite book of mine, Hideous Kinky, by Esther Freud.
I am not a writer or critic so not great at writing about books, but what I CAN say is that I am a busy executive with a short attention span, and I was able to really enjoy this story and these rich interesting characters. Nowadays, the "ashram" is very hip, but to see this cult like existence from the eyes of these two lovable British kids was fascinating and rewarding.
I was an English major in college and Ms. Craze's writing remind me of the quality of literature that we would have been studying in one of the classes on current fiction.
I highly recommend this!
