Another Captivating Read By Yann Martel!

Filed under: Literary Tidbits,Random House — susanbright @ 9:55 pm

 I don’t think that I will ever forget Yann Martel’s book Life Of Pi. Afterall, how can you forget the story of Pi Patel, trapped on a life boat with a Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker. Well, Yan Martel is back and his new book Beatrice and Virgil sounds every bit as intriguing. Bernice and Virgil is the story of an author named Henry and a taxidermist, also named Henry. There is no Bengal Tiger in this book, however there is a donkey named Beatrice and a Howler Monkey named Virgil. Yann’s new novel, originally titled A 20th- Century Shirt and  described as “thought provoking”  will be released this April. I was lucky enough to recieve a prepublicaton edition from Random House and can’t wait to read it. I have a feeling there is a lot more to this story than meets the eye!
