When a letter from an elderly taxidermist drops onto Henry’s doormat it poses a puzzle that he cannot resist.
As he is pulled closer to 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 charm and spirit that brought over seven million readers worldwide to Life of Pi, this novel takes the reader on a tremendous imaginative odyssey.
On the way Martel asks profound questions about the nature of human cruelty, kindness and the liberating power of stories.
