Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A fierce roar of a book, The Tiger’s Back is what haunts us—be it love, or loss, or a tiger, ‘all ember and ash,’ standing in the roses—Elliot has conjured a puckish elegy to what’s real and what’s illusion in this life.”

― William Lychack, The Architect of Flowers and The Wasp Eater
