If the Tiger by Terry Farishby
Andre Dubus recommends
If the Tiger, a novel by Terry Farish (Steerforth): "Ms. Farish has written a taut, fast-paced novel about the young daughter of a pilot in the Gulf War and a young woman who is a Cambodian refugee. In New Hampshire and Lowell, Massachusetts, the young women are in flight from the Cambodian husband and on a quest for family love. I love this beautiful, short book, and I want to read it again."
