Biography of Author?

Yann Martel was born on June 25, 1963, in Salamanca,
Spain, to Canadian parents. When Martel was a young boy, his parents joined the Canadian Foreign Services, and the family moved frequently, living in Alaska,
France, Costa Rica, Ontario, and British Columbia.
Martel went on to study philosophy at Trent University in Ontario, where he discovered a love for writing. After graduating in 1985, Martel lived with his parents and worked a number of odd jobs while continuing to write fiction. He published a collection of short stories,
Facts Behind the Helsinki Roccamatios, in 1993 and a novel,
, in 1996, but neither book received much critical or commercial attention. In 2002, however,
Martel’s international literary reputation was sealed with the publication of
Life of Pi, a runaway bestseller that went on to win the prestigious Man Booker Prize
(awarded each year to the best English­language novel written by a Commonwealth or Irish author) and had since been translated into thirty languages. Fox 2000 pictures bought the screen rights to Martel’s novel, and a feature film is expected in 2008.
