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.

Synopsis:

From the bestselling author of the Booker Prize-winning "Life of Pi" comes a mesmerizing and brilliant exploration of the limitations of language in understanding and describing the horrors of the Holocaust.
