The Tigerclaw Tree follows the shifting fortunes of four generations of a Tenkalai Iyengar family, as each member confronts his or her own role in their family legacy of idealism, political involvement and, ultimately, betrayal. First published in 1998, this attractive new edition brings to life again a novel that became a cult classic in its time. About the Author P.A.
