Christmas is that special time of year when we spend money we don’t have on people we don’t like, most often the people with whom we share a surname. (Ruth Day O’Connor)
In the outer reaches of Sydney, where the city bleeds into the bush, a tiger is on the loose.
Meet the Unwins. Rachelle has made her special dessert. Eddie is home from a stint at Silverwater. His teenaged wife Kylie is about to give birth. Howl is dealing drugs again. Mum’s on the brink of cardiac arrest. Six-year-old Xavier has a penchant for guns and Chuckles is five hours late for Christmas lunch.
They don’t call it the Silly Season for nothing.
Tiger Country is a comedy of sex, drugs, and the ugly secrets that weld a family together. Bitingly funny, savagely honest and brutally uncompromising, get ready for the hottest summer on record with this very Australian holiday story.
