Janette Turner Hospital's gifts for memorable characters, startling insights and poetic prose are . However, I don't think The Tiger in the Tiger Pit has aged particularly well. To be honest I found much of the writing over-wrought. For me, some characters worked better than others.

Janette Turner Hospital's gifts for memorable characters, startling insights and poetic prose are amply displayed in this intense psychological drama. A family reunion to celebrate a wedding anniversary is the scene of painful confrontation as fragments of past and present collide. Elizabeth (Bessie) was an intriguing and complex character, whose secrets were gradually revealed throughout the novel.

Janette Turner Hospital. The Tiger in the Tiger Pit. Janette Turner Hospital. In this powerfully dramatic saga, a mother works to reunite her children with their ailing tyrannical father and with each other. This vibrant, superbly crafted novel explores the elusive boundaries between existence and imagination, memory and truth. From the subtropical lushness of Queensland's Tamborine rainforest to the claustrophobic bedroom of a Boston physicist, Hospital's characters breathe an atmosphere of passion and suspense. Her son is a psychiatrist, one daughter is tragically schizophrenic, the other a free-spirited concert violinist whose young son may yet redeem them all.

This may be the best Hospital I've read. The title is from a line by T. S. Eliot and describes the patriarch of a family, Edward Carpenter, a retired school principal. The novel is set in a small town in Massachusetts around 1990 (though written in 1983)when Edward's wife is planning their fiftieth wedding anniversary party. She will invite of course, in addition to friends and former colleagues, their three children; Victoria, who is in a mental institution; Jason, a therapist in New York and Emily, a concert violinist living in England, along with her eight year old son Adam, whom her father Edward has never seen and didn't know existed until three years ago when Emily gave her first concert in the United States.

The novel is all about families: how easily we as family members hurt each other; what happens when we don't forgive one other; the awfulness of hypocrisy; how we can redeem ourselves; that we can never really know our parents; that though we travel far away, we never get far from where we came; the roads not taken, lost opportunities; and, finally, that we never stop wanting to be loved by our family.

The plot has many unexpected twists, and there are many beautifully written, powerful scenes. In Chapter XIII Edward and Elizabeth travel to New York to hear Emily give her first concert in the U. S. This is one of the most moving passages I have read anywhere in a long time. I read and reread and read it yet again. Great fiction doesn't get better than this.
