July 8, 2021: "The Night Tiger" by Yangsze Choo, copyright 2019
Excerpts from Kirkus Review: A young houseboy and a dressmaker's apprentice get drawn into a mystery in 1930s Malaya [Colonial Malaysia]. Choo (The Ghost Bride, 2013) continues her exploration of Malayan folklore here with questions that point to the borders where the magical and the real overlap: Choo weaves her research in with a feather-light touch, and readers will be so caught up in the natural and supernatural intrigue that the serious themes here about colonialism and power dynamics, about gender and class, are absorbed with equal delicacy.
