Polly Clark, born 1978 in Toronto, is a British-Canadian writer who writes on a house boat in London. She worked as a zookeeper and travelled to the Russian taiga for her novel Tiger. Published in German: Tiger, 2020.
… Clark writes with a poet’s ear and a naturalist’s eye, and has a deep grasp of the profound contract between indigenous peoples and the beasts they revere. She never loses sight of the endangered creature that forms the beating heart of a passionate, remarkable and uplifting novel.
