Everybody needs a Tigerman

‘Gloriously exuberant and entertaining,’ (Guardian), Nick Harkaway’s latest novel, Tigerman, is full of all the energy, verve and imaginative vision you would expect from the author of The Gone-Away World and Angelmaker. His fictionalised island of Mancreu, a formerly colonised island perfect for the shady dealings of international criminals, jumps from the page in full colour.

But at the heart of this novel is a moving, thought-provoking and very human story. Lester Ferris is a British army sergeant waiting out retirement on Mancreu who forges a father-and-son bond with a brilliant, internet-addled street kid with a comic book fixation. What they mean to one another and the heroic acts such a bond provokes turn this ripping adventure story into an utterly profound novel about familial love, wherever it may  be found.
