Moon Tiger

69 printed pages
Compelling, moving and eloquent, one of the great novels of the 20th century is brought to the stage for the first time. Winner of the 1987 Booker Prize, Dame Penelope Lively’s Moon Tiger is a haunting story of loss and desire.

Claudia Hampton is a popular historian, a strong, beautiful and difficult woman. Now in her seventies, she is plotting her greatest work – a history of the world. She looks back over her life growing up between the wars and remembers the people who have shared its triumphs and tragedies. There is Gordon, her adored brother; Jasper, the charming, untrustworthy lover and father of her daughter; and Tom, her one great love, both found and lost during the El Alamein campaign when she worked as a war correspondent. Against a background of world events, Claudia’s own remarkable story provokes a sharp combination of sadness, shock and amusement.

brother Gordon: he eleven, me ten – our concept of time was personal: tea-time, dinner-time, wasting time
What is memory? A crutch on which we lean, or an albatross round the neck? History is a matter of conflicting evidence, and so is private life – my version of a particular event will not be the same as yours
