"My Mother is an Ape. My Father is God," sings Ras Tyger at the start of this 1970 novel by Hugo and Nebula Award–winning grandmaster Philip José Farmer. "I am the only white man in the world. I come from the Land of Ghosts." Laughing, heroic, and beautiful, this lord of the jungle is the master of his world, and he rules his kingdom with sex, savagery, and sublime innocence—until one day, when the insane reality of his existence begins to unravel.
"Philip José Farmer is one of the most original and unpredictable of SF writers.... The eroticism is wild. The jungle itself is alive with a poetry both beautiful and sinister."—Science Fiction Review
