Yann Martel - The High Mountains of Portugal (2nd Hand Hardback)
ISBN / GTIN-13 : 9781782119203
Lost in Portugal. Lost to grief. With nothing but a chimpanzee. The extraordinary new novel from the author of Life of Pi.
In Lisbon in 1904, a young man named Tomás discovers an old journal. It hints at the location of an extraordinary artefact that - if it exists - would redefine history.
Travelling in one of Europe's earliest automobiles, he sets out in search of this treasure. Some thirty-five years later, a Portuguese pathologist finds himself at the centre of a murder mystery.
Fifty years on, a Canadian senator takes refuge in Northern Portugal, grieving the loss of his beloved wife. But he comes to his ancestral village with an unusual companion: a chimpanzee.
The High Mountains of Portugal takes the reader on a road trip through Portugal in the last century - and through the human soul.
