Catch the White Tiger

by Tony Assali


In 1970, civil war raged in Tony Assali’s home country of Lebanon. As the oldest of five children, the seventeen year old takes responsibility for his family’s survival. He travels to America alone to establish a foothold, so that one day the rest of his family can join him. Luckily, Tony possesses a special skill: the ability to perceive white tigers, rare and valuable opportunities other people either do not see or are too afraid to pursue. From humble beginnings working in a doughnut factory, to parlaying his charm into a position selling men’s suits by the thousands, Tony fulfills his promise to his family. Then Tony dares to dream bigger. He generates the idea to sell hummus, a Mediterranean staple from his homeland, in American grocery stores across the U.S. This white tiger catches on in a big way, making Tony a millionaire by the time he sells his food company in the 1980s. But even with numerous victories, Tony still hasn’t found the white tiger he’s really looking for—the right woman to make his life complete…until a married woman walks into his life. She might just be the one, and Tony is never the type of person to let an obstacle stop him.
