Yann Martel's new novel Beatrice & Virgil is now in the stores.
I already have my own review copy, graciously sent to me direct from Random House. [Thank you, Julie!]
I was surprised to see Mr. Martel featured on the evening news tonight, and I caught a snippet of the interview on my camera.
Here is an interesting factoid that preceded my expert film-making…. apparently Yann Martel received a $3,000,000 advance for Beatrice & Virgil.
As in --> 3 MILLION[s] !!
Now that's how you know your publisher loves you!
I briefly met the author in the Life of Pi heyday… and I must say, he is a wonderful person to meet.
Watch this brief segment, this brilliant video-footage, and you will learn that there is a relatively prestigious [extremely famous] person who is A Big Fan of Yann!
