Life of Pi

content.chilifresh-3Life of Pi by Yann Martel

Born in Spain to Canadian parents, Yann Martel grew up around the world (Costa Rica, France, Spain, and Mexico). This cosmopolitan upbringing exposed Martel to many different cultures and engrained in him a love of different viewpoints. After completing a degree in philosophy from Trent University, Martel returned to the road. In his travels to India, Turkey, and Iran, he worked as a tree planter, dishwasher, and security guard before writing fulltime.   His second novel, The Life of Pi, won the Mann Booker Prize in 2002. The novel intertwines theology and biology to describe a young Indian boy’s amazing journey across the Pacific stuck on a lifeboat with a tiger.

  1. “I’m not voting for Obama, because I don’t feel him, how can you be black in this country and ignore the racist history of this country, if you can lie to yourself then it’s easy to lie to everybody else.”Well good for you. I’m glad you see John McPain as the candidate who does such a bang-up job of addressing the “racist history of this country.”::rolling eyes::
