Tigers in Red Weather - Lisa Klaussmann
This is the kind of book that leaves you hot and bothered. Your hands anxiously sweating, the backs of your knees uneasily sticking to your seat.
Starting with the angular, striking Nick (irrititating her neighbours in a bright yellow swimsuit as her husband wallows absently), it skips forwards and backwards through giddy, tragic summers that punctuate the lives of Nick and her cousin Helena.
And then, on a day fuzzy with heat and strangeness, their children discover a dead body.
Gripping, upsetting and terrifying in turn, it’s chic, unsettling and requires an icy cocktail (or two) while reading.
P.S. Currently addicted to Sisterland by Curtis Sittenfeld.
