Some magicians work with silks, others doves -- Yann Martel works magic with words. So far his most dazzling trick has been Life of Pi, the global best-selling novel that won the 2002 Man Booker Prize (among other honors) and inspired the Oscar-winning film by Ang Lee. Now he is back with a gorgeous work of literature that's sure to amaze and astound: The High Mountains of Portugal. Told in three intersecting sections, the highly acclaimed book is part quest narrative, part ghost story and part contemporary fable. Advance praise for Martel's latest is already trending skyward (one reviewer gushed that it was "thought-provoking and profound"). Now Martel comes to Kepler's Books to read from and discuss this wise and truly luminous new work.
