About the Event

'The historical detail is immaculate, the landscape exquisitively drawn a rebuke to isolationist US policies written with panache and heart' -The Observer

'A tremendously talented writer' -Ann Patchett

Téa Obreht is the author of The Tiger's Wife, which won the 2011 Orange Prize, was shortlisted for the National Book Award and became both a New York Times and international bestseller.

"An extraordinary reimagining of the American West, which is as much about the land itself as it is about the people who eke a living from it"
The Bookseller
"this free‑ranging tale of an American frontierswoman should have been on the Booker longlist"
The Sunday Times
"This tale of the Wild West is told from unusual angles"
The Times
"Melodrama and mysticism converge on the arid 19th-century western frontier, as the author takes us on a camel ride"
Financial Times
"There are no stereotypes in this western, only ferociously adroit writing that honours the true strangeness of reality"
The Guardian
"This is not a novel to gulp down, but to savour"
Daily Mail
"The many readers who will enjoy “Inland” and put it on best-seller lists can send an old curse in my direction"
The New York Times
"(a) skilful exploration of myth and fable, and histories both forgotten and elaborated"
The Daily Telegraph
"a timely exploration of the darkness beneath the American dream"
The Observer
"an expansive and ambitious subversion of Western tropes, set in fin de siècle America."
The Spectator
