January 2012

"...this new memoir demands to be read and remarked upon...What makes Tiger, Tiger revelatory is how faithfully, how meticulously, it depicts the experience as one of desperate, diseased companionship"

"Distasteful though the subject is, Fragoso's memoir is redeemed by the clarity of the author's understanding of her experience and by compassion for her own highly disturbed parents and for her victimizer, a wretched soul who paid the full price for his transgressions."

"In this gut-wrenching, disturbing memoir of sexual abuse, Fragoso explores with unflinching honesty the ways in which pedophiles can manipulate their way into the lives of children."

"Margaux writes with great emotion about the vulnerability of youth, and how when love is lacking at home, it can cause bad things in life to become reality. This is gripping reading, which may make you want to hug your child a little tighter after finishing the book. 5 Bookmarks (out of five)"

"The question the book poses, and answers, is how exactly does something like this happen?"

"Fragoso is pitiless in her account of the twisted codependence she shared. Using material culled from diaries and daily letters exchanged with Peter, she describes certain scenes in...unflinching detail...But if secrets and lies make abusers successful, Tiger, Tiger takes power away from them by articulating the unspeakable, encouraging readers to break their own silence."

"Fragoso attempts something...courageous and precarious here. She draws a portrait of a predator that is both human and multi-dimensional...That tension between understanding and exculpation in her language is ratcheted so tightly it threatens to collapse inward on itself. But Fragosoís voice is steadfast and there feels such a driving need for disclosure that, miraculously, she pulls it off. Itís remarkable that anyone would make it out the other side of an experience as horrific as this, let alone write such a beautifully executed memoir about it."

"Tiger, Tiger is the story of Margaux's (d)evolving relationship not merely with a pedophile but with reality. It is a meditation on love and need and alienation and attachment, and on the human capacity for adapting to subjugation against an innate biological drive for freedom and autonomy."

"Tiger, Tiger, is a memoiróand we expect to see reviewers spilling a lot of ink in their efforts to describe it... itís unusually thoughtful and well-written, and it has a lot more than shock value to recommend it."
