"Henry, a writer, receives an envelope from a reader who says heneeds his help. Curious, Henry visits the man. He turns out ot be a skille d taxidermist and a struggling writer. As Henry is pulled closer into the world of this cold and calculating man, he becomes increasingly involved in the story of Beatrice and Virgil, a donkey and a howler monkey, and the epic, profoundly moving journey that brough them to Okapi Taxidermy. Along theway, Yann Martel poses enduring questions about art and life, truth and de ception, responsibility and complicity." - from the dustjacket.Very good in crisp, unclipped dustjacket.
