About This Item

Orlando: Harcourt / Harvest, 2003. Trade Paperback. Fine. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 326 pages. Winner of the Booker Prize 2002. Piscine Molitor Patel, otherwise known as Pi, lives in Pondicherry, where his father owns and runs the city zoo. When he is sixteen, his parents decide to emigrate to Canada, taking their large family with them, but tragedy strikes when the cargo ship carrying them sinks during a terrible storm. One solitary lifeboat remains bobbing on the wild blue Pacific. In it are five survivors: Pi, a hyena, a zebra (with a broken leg), a female orangutan and a 450-pound Royal Bengal Tiger. The scene is set for an extraordinary piece of literary fiction.
