About the book

Bookcover of Tigers on the Beach by Dough Macleod

Have you heard the one about the guy who lost a grandfather, but found a girlfriend? It's funny. It's also kind of sad. And some of the bits that are sad are also kind of funny (but only if you laugh at that sort of thing).

This is a novel about how comedy unites and divides us.
