About the Author
Larissa Lai is the author of two novels, When Fox Is a Thousand and Salt Fish Girl; two poetry collections, sybil unrest and Automaton Biographies; and a critical nonfiction book Slanting I, Imagining We. A Canada Research Chair at the University of Calgary, she directs the Insurgent Architects' House for Creative Writing.
"The Tiger Flu isn't just the story we want. It's the kind of story that we need, that we deserve, that we have been waiting for in this time of utopian dreaming and dystopian reality. It's a gift, and a reminder: We can be more than what we've been offered. We must choose more. We must choose each other, and life." --Autostraddle

"A compelling cyberpunk thriller ... Lai draws inspiration from the feminist science fiction of Marge Piercy and Joanna Russ, exploring questions of reproduction, lesbian separatism, and biopolitics in the often absurdist and even surrealist world of Salt Water City." --Booklist

"Starting with an atmospheric opening page, in The Tiger Flu, Larissa Lai goes wholly maximalist in her world-building ... A surprisingly enchanting vision of post-Peak Oil dystopia." --Toronto Star

"A compelling read about ostracization, disease, technology, tolerance, and survival in a society facing extinction from a horrific pandemic." --The Advocate ("Best Books of the Year")

"A tantalizing novel, replete with the kind of detail that recalls the world of Margaret Atwood's MaddAddam trilogy yet belongs to another territory entirely, thrillingly its own. With Atwood you're in a world that's odd but recognizable, whereas with Lai, you're in a world that's completely strange--until it shocks you with a flash of the familiar." --Quill and Quire
