About This Book

An everyday jungle gathering trip turns into a nightmare of fear, deception and betrayal for seven villagers when they are stalked by a hungry tiger. The author, former renown journalist Mochtar Lubis, skillfully strips the characters of their disguise, and through the plot, observes how humans behave under extreme stress. This is an allegory on the power of a charismatic leader (Sukarno) who, when confronted by his "tiger" crumbles, and is left bereft of power or glory. Originally published in Indonesian in 1975 as Harimau! Harimau!
