The Silence of the TigerBook - 2011
When his father's oldest friend, Kadir, emails Jonas to propose that they collaborate on a biography of Jonas' famous father, Jonas is reluctant-- he hasn't seen his father in nine years. Kadir's accounts of Abbas are admiring, Jonas' memories are critical and laced with irony and rage-- and we're given a portrayal of a man that is at once tender and feverishly imagined.
