Our summer book club continues today with Celeste's first pick for July. Tea Obreht burst onto the literary scene this year with her first novel, "The Tiger’s Wife." The book explores one woman’s family history through historical myths and realities in the Balkans region.
At the age of 25, Obreht has already done what many authors hope to achieve a lifetime. In addition to critical acclaim for "The Tiger’s Wife," she also won the Orange Prize this year, making her the youngest person ever to do so.
A recent Happy Ending Music and Reading Series focused on (modern) legends and beliefs. Listen to readings from Tea Obreht, Dean Bakopoulos, and Fernanda Eberstadt here.
