In 2010, Tea Obreht was named by The New Yorker as one of the twenty best American fiction writers under forty and she was included in the National Book Foundation’s list of 5 Under 35. The Tiger’s Wife was one of the most talked about and widely anticipated debuts in recent history.  At 25, Obreht is the youngest person ever to win the Orange Prize.
