Penelope Lively's Booker Prize winning classic, Moon Tiger
is a haunting story of loss and desire.
Claudia Hampton—beautiful, famous, independent, dying.
But she remains defiant to the last, telling her nurses that she will write a ‘history of the world… and in the process, my own’. And it is her story from a childhood just after the First World War through the Second and beyond. But Claudia's life is entwined with others and she must allow those who knew her, loved her, the chance to speak, to put across their point of view. There is Gordon, brother and adversary; Jasper, her untrustworthy lover and father of Lisa, her cool conventional daughter; and then there is Tom, her one great love, found and lost in wartime Egypt.The House in Norham Gardens
No.40 Norham Gardens, Oxford, is the home of Clare Mayfield, her two aged aunts and two lodgers. The house is a huge Victorian monstrosity, with rooms all full of old furniture, old papers, old clothes, memorabilia - it is like a living museum.
Clare discovers in a junk room the vividly painted shield which her great-grandfather, an eminent anthropologist, had brought back from New Guinea. She becomes obsessed with its past and determined to find out more about its strange tribal origins.
Dreams begin to haunt her - dreams of another country, another culture, another time, and of shadowy people whom she feels are watching her. Who are they, and what do they want?Moon Tiger, 440Kb Download link 1 Download link 2 The House in Norham Gardens, 3.7Mb Download link 3 Download link 4
