On April 13, over seven years after he came out of nowhere to win the Booker Prize for what has remained one of the most popular novels of the last decade, Life of Pi , Yann Martel will release his next novel, Beatrice and Virgil. In the meantime, he's put his plans for the new novel through many versions which you can get a hint of from what seems a very autobiographical opening to the new book, which tells the story of how a bestselling author named Harry had to abandon his great plans for a flip-book version of his new book, one half a novel and the other a nonfiction essay, a plan that Martel himself described to me, and no doubt to many others, for Beatrice and Virgil a couple of years ago. I've just had the chance to begin reading Beatrice and Virgil , and I can report that it is fully in the Martel style: graceful, funny, and provocative, as he embarks on a fictional experiment whose outcome you can't come close to guessing 50 pages in and I still haven't seen any sign of the donkey and monkey I know are coming at some point. But in the past few years, he's also been fully immersed in another experiment in fiction, a two-person and apparently one-way book club he started called What Is Stephen Harper Reading? Starting in April , inspired by the prime minister of Canada's indifference toward the arts and by what Martel sees as the shortage of "stillness" in his busy administrative life, Martel has sent a book to Prime Minister Harper every two weeks, along with a letter explaining his choice which he also posts to his blog of the same name.
