The son of a zookeeper, Pi Patel has an encyclopedic knowledge of animal behavior and a fervent love of stories. When Pi is sixteen, his family emigrates from India to North America aboard a Japanese cargo ship, along with their zoo animals bound for new homes.

The ship sinks. Pi finds himself alone in a lifeboat, his only companions a hyena, an orangutan, a wounded zebra, and Richard Parker, a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon the tiger has dispatched all but Pi, whose fear, knowledge, and cunning allow him to coexist with Richard Parker for 227 days while lost at sea. When they finally reach the coast of Mexico, Richard Parker flees to the jungle, never to be seen again. The Japanese authorities who interrogate Pi refuse to believe his story and press him to tell them ""the truth."" After hours of coercion, Pi tells a second story, a story much less fantastical, much more conventional--but is it more true?

PRAISE FOR LIFE OF PI

""Life of Pi could renew your faith in the ability of novelists to invest even the most outrageous scenario with plausible life.""— The New York Times Book Review

""A story to make you believe in the soul-sustaining power of fiction.""— Los Angeles Times Book Review

""A gripping adventure story . . . Laced with wit, spiced with terror, it's a book by an extraordinary talent.""— St. Paul Pioneer-Press

""A terrific book . . . Fresh, original, smart, devious, and crammed with absorbing lore.""— Margaret Atwood

""An impassioned defense of zoos, a death-defying trans-Pacific sea adventure a la Kon-Tiki, and a hilarious shaggy-dog story . . . : This audacious novel manages to be all of these."" — The New Yorker

""Readers familiar with Margaret Atwood, Mavis Gallant, Alice Munro, Michael Ondaatje and Carol Shields should learn to make room on the map of contemporary Canadian fiction for the formidable Yann Martel."" — Chicago Tribune
