Fate takes many forms ...When Henry receives a letter from an elderly taxidermist, it poses a puzzle that he cannot resist.
As he is pulling 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 orginality that made Life of Pi so treasured, 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.
