Yann Martel

"Once I sent sixteen different stories to sixteen different literary reviews. I received sixteen rejections." Yann Martel

I have just finished The High Mountains of Portugal and enjoyed it very much. In due course a review will appear on my Reviews page. But the quotation above made me rather flippantly think that writing a  tongue-in-cheek fifty or one hundred word pitch for a Yann Martel novel would make for a wonderfully entertaining competition!
