Life of Pi - Yann Martel

It is true that those we meet can change us, sometimes so profoundly that we are not the same afterwards, even unto our names.


Yann Martel


Happy 54th birthday, Yann Martel. The novelist initially considered other animals—including an elephant and a rhinoceros—to place in the lifeboat with a young Indian boy, but finally settled on a tiger and began writing his Man Booker Prize-winning novel Life of Pi.
