Praise for Tigers In Red Weather

  • There are few women writing non-fiction today with such a sophisticated understanding of language, such a nuanced approach to style, and such a brazen willingness to engage with the big issues, personal and political.

  • Thrilling and surprising . . . her prose has an intense, lush quality . . . She has an adventurer's intrepid spirit and a poet's eye for detail and ear for dialogue - SUNDAY TELEGRAPH

  • Ruth Padel is a wonderful writer and she has produced perhaps the best book ever written on the places where tigers live - EVENING STANDARD
