Beatrice and Virgil

By YANN MARTEL

With Beatrice and Virgil, Yann Martel spins an intricately structured tale that begins with a writer, Henry, at loose ends after publishing a bestseller that resembles Martel’s own international sensation Life of Pi. Stalled in his pursuit of a new subject, he strikes up a curiously intense relationship with a taxidermist, who wants Henry’s help with his own mysterious project. The result is a uniquely wrought story about creativity, history, and art.
