The Night Guest

New or Used: 4 copies from $8.73
One morning Ruth wakes thinking a tiger has been in her seaside house. Later that day a formidable woman called Frida arrives, looking as if she's blown in from the sea. In fact she's come to care for Ruth. Frida and the tiger: both are here to stay, and neither is what they seem. Which of them can Ruth trust? And as memories of her childhood in Fiji press upon her with increasing urgency, can she even trust herself?

'The best Australian first novel I've read in years. I so much admire the intelligence that animates it, and her calm sentences that contain surprises.' - Michelle de Kretser, winner of the 2013 Miles Franklin Award for Questions of Travel. 'Such an accomplished and polished debut. There's a delicacy and poignancy to the writing, combined with almost unbearable suspense.' - Kate Atkinson, author of Life After Life
