Description

"A powerful, moving and beautifully wrought novel about the ways in which lives are molded by personal memory and the collective past." -- The Boston Globe

Winner of the Man Booker Prize

Elderly, uncompromising Claudia Hampton lies in a London hospital bed with memories of life fluttering through her fading consciousness. An author of popular history, Claudia proclaims she's carrying out her last project: a history of the world. This history turns out to be a mosaic of her life, her own story tangled with those of her brother, her lover and father of her daughter, and the center of her life, Tom, her one great love found and lost in war-torn Egypt. Always the independent woman, often with contentious relationships, Claudia's personal history is complex and fascinating. As people visit Claudia, they shake and twist the mosaic, changing speed, movement, and voice, to reveal themselves and Claudia's impact on their world.

"Emotionally, Moon Tiger is kaleidoscopic, deeply satisfying. The all too brief encounter between Claudia and Tom will surely rate as one of the most memorable of contemporary fictional affairs. This is one of the best novels I have read for years." -- The London Sunday Telegraph

"It pulls us in; it engages us and saddens us. It is also unexpectedly funny... It leaves its traces in the air long after you've put it away." -- The New York Times Book Review

"One of the very best Booker winners... it asks hard questions about memory and history and personal legacy; it's stylistically demanding and inventive... a wonderful book." -- The Guardian
