9780241950159: Tiger, Tiger: A Memoir

I still think about Peter, the man I loved most in the world, all the time. At two in the afternoon, when he would come and pick me up and take me for rides; at five, when I would read to him, head on his chest; in the despair at seven p.m., when he would hold me and rub my belly for an hour; in the despair again at nine p.m. when we would go for a night ride, down to the Royal Cliffs Diner in Englewood Cliffs where I would buy a cup of coffee with precisely seven sugars and a lot of cream. We were friends, soul mates and lovers. I was seven. He was fifty-one.

About the Author:

Margaux Fragoso grew up in Union City, New Jersey. When she was seven she loved the red gumballs that came from gumball machines but left behind the blues and greens; later, she loved Madonna and still later Kurt Cobain. Margaux now has one daughter and no longer lives in New Jersey. Tiger, Tiger will be published by Farrar, Straus & Giroux in the United States and is already being translated into seventeen languages.

Review:

'Tiger, Tiger will start a thousand conversations. It is shocking, revelatory and fearless. As the story of a victim, it is gripping; as a work of literature, it's a triumph' -- Alice Sebold, author of The Lovely Bones Margaux Fragoso was only 7 years old when she swam up to a guy in his 50s and asked him to play with her. The mesmerizing memoir of the next fifteen years - spent with the pedophile who became her playmate, father, and lover - had us enraged, horrified, and unable to put it down. * Daily Candy, the 10 Nonfiction Reads of the New Year * Margaux Fragoso's memoir, a subtly crafted account of her 15-year involvement as a child and adolescent with a middle-aged man, asks urgent questions about the traffic between memory and art. -- Boyd Tonkin, Ones to Watch in 2011 * The Independent * An Observer Cultural Highlight of 2011 * The Observer * What I'm Telling My Friends: Brave, dark, and horrifying ... an unforgettable survivor's story. Get it. Read it. NOW! -- Julie Kane * LibraryJournal.com * Revelatory...her tale loops amazingly around her own coming-of-age and sets her down in adulthood with a transformative twist...it breaks the mold...an astonishing and heartbreaking drama. * Elle US * We dare you to turn away. * O, The Oprah Magazine * Astonishing. * Marie Claire US * Fragoso is a born storyteller, and stories were her fail-safe during her scarring entanglement with the man who devoured her childhood....[She] matches shattering exposure with humanizing insights and extraordinary compassion. * Booklist * A Top Ten Memoir of 2011. * Publisher's Weekly *
