    Selected as a Book of the Year 2016 in the Guardian Shortlisted for the International Dylan Thomas Prize 'One of the most compelling and unusual novels I've read this year.... A fascinating story of hunters and observers, old mythical gods and modern politics.' Sarah Hall, Guardian Books of the Year When a young elephant is brutally orphaned by poachers, it is only a matter of time before he begins terrorising the countryside, earning his malevolent name from the humans he kills and then tenderly buries with leaves. Manu, the studious son of a rice farmer, loses his cousin to the Gravedigger and is drawn into the alluring world of ivory hunting. Emma is working on a documentary set in a Kerala wildlife park with her best friend. Her work leads her to witness the porous boundary between conservation and corruption and she finds herself caught up in her own betrayal. As the novel hurtles toward its tragic climax, these three storylines fuse into a wrenching meditation on love and revenge, fact and myth, duty and sacrifice. In a feat of audacious imagination and arrestingly beautiful prose, The Tusk That Did the Damage tells an original and heartbreaking story about how we treat nature, and each other.

    A book for wildlife enthusiasts and observers of the human condition alike

    Stories that deal with the animal-human conflict in India began and ended with the wonderful memoirs of the much revered Jim Corbett written decades ago. Similarly, stories that include authentic veterinarians in their plots came in the form of the almost memoir-like writings of the great Yorkshireman James Herriot. Stories of life in Indian villages when presented to us readers are either idyllic like those of the fictional Malgudi or unbelievably morose and depressing like Godan. Tania Jame...
