Summary
Booker Prize-winning author Yann Martel's novel unfolds the story of Henry, a writer living in a foreign city. When one of his readers mails him a scene from Flaubert's Beatrice and Virgil as well as a plea for help, Henry visits the return address, which happens to be a nearby taxidermy shop. Upon meeting the elderly and abstruse taxidermist, who in turn introduces him to Beatrice, a donkey, and Virgil, a howler monkey, Henry's life is changed forever
