The appearance of a young storyteller with a unique fictional voice is cause for celebration. Yann Martel's title story (described as "unforgettable...a truly stunning piece of fiction"), won the 1991 Journey Prize to universal acclaim. The intensely human tragedy that lies at its heart is told with a spare, careful elegance that resonates long after it has ended -- and is matched through all the stories by an immediacy an dazzling freshness.

none of these blew me way, but they are all well written and interesting. i like the way Martel thinks, and the way he writes. he really works to touch upon universal human sadness and doesn't shy away from the dark side of life.
