Yann Martel

Yann Martel was born in Spain but currently lives in Saskatoon, Canada. He is the award-winning author of four previous books, the most recent of which is What Is Stephen Harper Reading? He studied philosophy at Trent University, worked at odd jobs—tree planter, dishwasher, security guard—and travelled widely before turning to writing. His second novel, Life of Pi, won the 2002 Man Booker, among other prizes.

‘Dear Santa, Please Gift-Wrap The World.’ Yours, Yann Martel
