The fall from innocence — or rise to stardom — was swift and conclusive. Obreht was spotlighted in The New Yorker's "20 Under 40" list before "The Tiger's Wife" was published; she was the youngest to make the list. When "The Tiger's Wife" was published, in March of 2011, the cover bore a blurb from author Colum McCann, calling Obreht "the most thrilling literary discovery in years." The book earned Obreht the Orange Prize for Fiction, a prestigious U.K. honor for female writers, and was a finalist for the National Book Award.
