Tigers in Red Weather
Author: Liza Klaussman RRP: £12.99 Publisher: Picador
A simmering debut novel brilliantly told by five family members, cousins Nick and Helena, Nick’s husband Hughes, their daughter Daisy and Helena’s slightly strange son Ed. Set predominantly in the summer of 1959, the family have gathered at Tiger House when Daisy and Ed make a sinister dicovery. Full of glamour, passion, addiction and dark secrets, carefully hidden behind a fragile facade.
I hadn’t intended reading Tigers in Red Weather, but having picked up a proof copy and started reading, was quickly drawn in and raced through it. A perfect summer read!
