"Korea serves as a perfect crucible for Kim's expansive and impressive historical fiction debut, in which the characters must struggle against overwhelming odds...her vision is powerfully executed, taking readers through all the important landmarks of 20th-century Korean history, including the end of Japanese occupation and division of Korea." - Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Tiger Pelt is...a hard-hitting, gritty work... presenting a unique opportunity to understand the cultures and lives changed in the course of showing how two disparate souls enter hell and come out the other side. It's a highly recommended pick, and a standout in the genre of literary and historical fiction." -Midwest Book Review
"A passionate, absorbing novel, Annabelle Kim's Tiger Pelt with its South Korean backdrop is a seismic tremor of a book. Kim who is a writer with bold insights fixes on two interwoven lives with humane irony, antic imagination, and an unsettling perceptiveness that includes much fascinating lore about that country and her wounded but ultimately triumphant fictional creations. It is a stark, often unsparing book." - Alexander Theroux, author of Darconville's Cat
"Tiger Pelt by Annabelle Kim...is spellbinding...It is a story that readers will not want to put down." - Reader View

If you want to be swept up in a book full of emotion and events that feel so real you can touch them,this is one book you should read." - Readers' Favorite.
"This novel does exactly what a novel should do - it absorbs the reader in its characters' lives, and enriches the reader's own life while doing so." - Kelsey Review
