Revue de presse

"With sultry prose and a sure hand for suspense, Liza Klaussmann expertly weaves a vivid tale of glamour and despair, fidelity and betrayal, secrets and abandon. Tigers in Red Weather will have you furiously postponing all human interaction until its gripping finale."―- Maria Semple, author of Where'd You Go, Bernadette

Présentation de l'éditeur

Nick and her cousin Helena grew up in a world of sun bleached boat docks, tennis whites, and midnight gin parties at Tiger House, the family home on Martha's Vineyard. In the wake of the Second World War, the two women are on the cusp of starting their "real lives": Helena is off to Hollywood and a new marriage to the charismatic Avery Lewis, while Nick is heading for a reunion with her own husband, Hughes Derringer, about to return from the war. The world seems rife with possibility.

The gilt soon begins to crack. Avery is not the man he seems to be, and Hughes has grown distant, his inner light curtained over. On the brink of the 1960s, Nick and Helena-with their children Daisy and Ed-try to recapture that earlier sense of possibility. But then Daisy and Ed discover something truly awful, and the dark thread of the family's history slowly starts to unravel. The secrets and lies that each member thought long buried begin to surface.

Brilliantly told with the tempestuous elegance of F. Scott Fitzgerald and the suspenseful dark longing of Patricia Highsmith, Tigers in Red Weather is an almost unbearably compelling story of liars, lust, and secrets. It heralds the arrival of a fierce literary talent.

Did not know what to expect from an unknown author but was pleasantly surprised. A well crafted and very unusual story - I had no idea where it was going to go but the trip was well worthwhile. Believable characters with varying degrees of human frailty. You will not be disappointed - looking forward to her next offering.

I Must Be Missing Something 24 juillet 2012
Par Jayne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I am way off what the other reviewers are saying about this book. It's one of the few books I've read this year that I thoroughly disliked - the writing, the story, the characters, everything. To be fair, I listened to it on Audible, so I suppose it could be the way it's performed, but I don't really think so. I didn't experience any lyrical writing. I didn't encounter anything dark and brooding. I for sure got no whiff of the likes of Fitzgerald, unless you count the fact that the female lead is awkwardly named Nick, and her daughter is named Daisy. And that right there ought to tell you a little something about how hackneyed this book can be.

I've read some really wonderful books this year - Beautiful Ruins, The O'Briens, and Arcadia are three I can think of right off the top of my head. Tigers in Red Weather can't even stand in the same room with them. Makes me wonder what I'm missing that everyone else seems to be loving about this book...?

A Character Focussed Summer Read 15 juillet 2012
Par Ethan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Nick and her cousin, Helena, are two women searching for their place in the world. With the Second World War drawing two a close, both women find themselves ready to take on the rest of their lives. In author Liza Klaussmann's debut novel, "Tigers in Red Weather", readers are provided with the strong characterization of an intriguing family.

Nick and her husband Hughes are finding it difficult to adjust to domestic life after the end of the war. They live in a small, Florida cottage where the repetition of their daily routines is taking a toll on them. Hughes follows the role that most men of the era do, consistently attending work to provide for his family. Nick, never much of a cook, finds it difficult to complete her daily tasks, and longs for something more.

Meanwhile, her cousin Helena is starting her new life by marrying a Hollywood producer. After the unfortunate death of her first husband, who lost his life in the war, Helena finally seems to be on the path to her dream life. Unfortunately, the lights of her Hollywood marriage are not as bright as she thought. Her husband seems interested in only using her family's money to fund his ill-fated project.

Fast-forward ten years, and both Nick and Helena are mothers to Daisy and Ed respectively. The two women, along with their children and Hughes, are spending the summer at the family's coastal property, The Tiger House. Despite their age, both women long for a more interesting life. When Daisy and Ed stumble upon the brutally murdered corpse of a maid, the facade of happiness that the entire family has built begins to come crashing down.

In this debut, reminiscent of "The Great Gatsby" in both style and substance, Klaussmann provides readers with a tale full of genuine characters and suspense, making this novel the perfect intellectual summer read. The story is broken into five sections, each narrated by a different main character, providing intimate insights into each person's thoughts, emotions, and motivations. Chronology became a bit muddied at times, especially when characters reminisce through flashbacks, but Klaussmann does a commendable job keeping the times labeled. There is a murder in the story, but the focus becomes more about the characters, the murder merely a means to explore the family dynamics. Overall, this novel has a great mix of historical setting, interesting characters, and narrative momentum. I definitely recommend this book as a strong summer read.

Very disappointing 20 juillet 2012
Par Elizabeth - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I picked this up after reading in Elle Magazine that it had been a readers' favorite. I guess I have different taste than most of other people who read Elle, because I was incredibly disappointed in this book. I found it to be poorly written, poorly developed, full of overwrought language and riddled with painfully cliched dialogue. I found the characters inconsistently portrayed - Nick is sometimes very concerned with what people think and overly concerned about doing what is proper; at other times she is intent on scandalizing her neighbors or seducing a musician at a party. Helena and Nick were supposed to have enjoyed a loving and close relationship - but no evidence of that is ever demonstrated. No character felt remotely believable to me, nor were any of their relationships convincing. And some of the dialogue, particularly that between the children, was stilted and very poorly written.

Great summer read 17 juillet 2012
Par AnneB - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a really interesting book. I liked how the story was told through five different points of view, it gave a more complete view of what happened in all five lives. Each character was well developed and interesting, I did not find one to be boring. The character I found most interesting was Nick, she is not the most likable but she is the most complex by far. Her coldness, her strong personality, her unique beauty, and her inner fragility made for a fascinating person to read about.

The book does involve a murder but it is really the individual characters that move the story along. The murder was really just a side story for me, I was much more interested in what was going on in the five peoples lives.

I would recommend this book to someone who likes character driven books or to someone interested in reading about life in New England among the rich after WWII. It is a fascinating look at how the wealthy spent their summers drinking, boating, and having a good time. It is at times a heartbreaking look at marriage, family, and how it is possible to hate the ones we love. It is a well written, original book that I enjoyed.

That Red Bathing Suit... 23 juillet 2012
Par PattyLouise - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Tigers In Red Weather
Lisa Klaussman

My " in a nutshell" summary...

The lives of two cousins and their families immediately after WWII. Everyone is just a tad bit dysfunctional.

My thoughts after reading this book...

Rationing, living without your husband, waiting for the war to end so life can be normal again...that is part of what this book is about. But it is also about the confused and damaged relationships that all of these people have. Nick and Helena, cousins, married to Hughes and Avery. Daisy, Nick's daughter and Ed, Helena's son...cousins who see each other every summer at their family's summer home. Nick...who appears to have everything while Helena feels cheated. Hughes harbors secrets. Ed has secrets. Nick has secrets.
Avery...again...weird secrets. Helena...blots out life with pills.
Lots of puzzling characters...

This book is not a relaxing beach read but is rather an intense, chilling, well written mystery. Sort of hovering around everything is the dead body found by Daisy and Avery the summer before they turned 13.

What I loved about this book...

I loved the images that stayed in my head about that era. Tomato aspic, fine china, grandmother's linens. Secret lemonade recipes and sundresses and dish towels hanging on a door. Parties in the summer with bands and white dinner jackets...champagne and gin and tonics and lots of under currents running through conversations because people never really said what they thought. I loved the secrets. Everyone had at least one...or two.

What I did not love...

Hmmm...tomato aspic? What is that? It sounds horrible. And...there were lots of unappealing characters...I loved reading about them but I would not ever want to be around them...especially Ed. He is totally creepy and the way he likes "handling" small animals is weird...very weird.

Should you read this book?

If any of my thoughts appeal to you...yes...you should. Complex characters and a provocative storyline made me absolutely enamored with this book. The setting was lovely...the era was lovely...that time must have been difficult to live in. People just didn't say things...they hid them...their thoughts.
And Ed's story...the last part of this book...absolutely breathtaking.
