Set in 1930s colonial Malaysia, The Night Tiger tells of a dancehall girl and an orphan boy whose fates entangle over an old Chinese superstition about men who turn into tigers. Dazzling and propulsive, The Night Tiger pulls us into a world of servants and masters, age-old myths and modern idealism, sibling rivalry and forbidden love. The Night Tiger was a Reese Witherspoon Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick and an instant New York Times bestseller. Choo’s first novel, The Ghost Bride, was a New York Times bestseller and is currently in production as a Netflix Original series.

Choo is a fourth-generation Malaysian of Chinese descent. After graduating from Harvard University, she worked as a management consultant and at a startup before embarking on a career as a writer. She lives in California.

“A work of incredible beauty… Astoundingly captivating and striking… A transcendent story of courage and connection.” — Booklist (starred review).
