Beatrice and Virgil

Hay Festival 2010, 
The spirit of his Booker-winning Life of Pi resonates in this new novel, launched at Hay, which takes us on an imaginative odyssey in the company of a donkey and a howler monkey. Martel asks profound questions about the nature of human cruelty, kindness and the liberating power of stories.
