August 2012 Debut of the Month.

Eight publishers were fighting over this debut novel from London based New Yorker Klaussmann and all you need to do is read the Opening Extract to see why. Magnificently told from five perspectives, Tigers in Red Weather is a simmering novel of passion, betrayal and secret violence beneath a polished and fragile facade.

If you like Liza Klaussmann you might also like to read books by Eva Rice, Tom Franklin and Curtis Sittenfeld.


Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussmann

Nick and her cousin, Helena, have grown up sharing sultry summers at Tiger House, the glorious old family estate on the island of Martha's Vineyard. As World War II ends they are on the cusp of adulthood, the world seeming to offer itself up to them. Helena is leaving for Hollywood and a new marriage, while Nick is to be reunited with her young husband Hughes, due to return from London and the war. Everything is about to change. Neither quite finds the life she had imagined, and as the years pass, the trips to Tiger House take on a new complexity. Then, on the brink of the 1960s, Nick's daughter Daisy and Helena's son Ed make a sinister discovery. It plunges the island's bright heat into private shadow and sends a depth-charge to the heart of the family. Summer seemed to arrive at that moment, with its mysterious mixture of salt, cold flesh and fuel.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
