Tiger by Polly Clark

Published by Riverrun Books

Judges Comments:

'This journey into the last wilderness for a damaged and intriguing heroine goes for the jugular in every way, with a lyrical and visceral evocation of place and people that seized and awed the judges.'

Riverrun's Comments:

'Tiger has been described beautifully as less a novel than the force of nature caught in fiction. It’s an achievement worthy of a Saltire Prize shortlisting.'

Polly Clark:

'I’m so excited and honoured that Tiger has been shortlisted for the Saltire Fiction Book of the Year! I’m so proud of this book and of being a Scottish writer. Thank you.'
