Beatrice and Virgil (Large Print)

Beatrice and Virgil (Large Print) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fate takes many forms. . . .

 

When Henry receives a letter from an elderly taxidermist, it poses a puzzle that he cannot resist. As he is pulled further into the world of this strange and calculating man, Henry becomes increasingly involved with the lives of a donkey and a howler monkey—named Beatrice and Virgil—and the epic journey they undertake together.

With all the spirit and originality that made Life of Pi so beloved, this brilliant new novel takes the reader on a haunting odyssey. On the way Martel asks profound questions about life and art, truth and deception, responsibility and complicity.

 

From the Hardcover edition.
