Book description
Shabby Tiger was Howard Spring's first novel...a masterpiece of storytelling and shrewd character drawing. The scene he chose was Manchester, a city that he knew well for he had been a reporter on the Manchester Guardian. In this story his characters live a fierce, vivid life. They are coarse, vulgar, outspoken, but you are not likely to forget them: Nick Faunt, the shabby young artist of genius; Piggy White, the gross bookmaker, and moses, his Jewish clerk; Rachel Rosing, Mo's sister, a heartless 'climber' who almost touches her ambition's goal before plunging to disaster; Sir George Faunt, a Manchester 'city father' and a shameless flirt. Particularly you will not forget Anna Fitzgerald, beautiful with no understanding of normal morals but a lovable creation - one of the most original women in fiction.
