"A slim, wry story set in an unnamed town near the Indian Ocean, Man Tiger tells the story of two interlinked and tormented families, and of Margio, an ordinary half-city, half-rural youngster who also happens to be half-man, half-supernatural female white tiger (in many parts of Indonesia, magical tigers protect good villages and families). At once elegant and bawdy, experimental and political, Man Tiger will help to establish Indonesia's new voice, underrepresented in world literature, while demonstrating the influence of world literature on Indonesian writers"--

Man Tiger is an expertly written story that follows the tragic relationships between two families in a rural Indonesian village. The 'supernatural' tiger promised in the book's cover summary is not the focus of the tale (though it is a highlight), but rather, the pains and intrigues of families and village inhabitants. It is memorable for its vivid characterization and captivating tangents into the thoughts and emotions of the individuals at the text's heart.
