In conversation with host Neil Besner and signingThe High Mountains of Portugal (Knopf Canada). Co-presented by The Winnipeg International Writers Festival as part of our collaborative Spring Literary Series.

The author of the bestselling Life of Pi returns to the storytelling power and luminous wisdom of that masterful novel. His new book, The High Mountains of Portugal—part quest, part ghost story, part contemporary fable—offers a haunting exploration of great love and great loss. Filled with tenderness, humor, and endless surprise, it takes the reader on a road trip through Portugal in the last century—and through the human soul.
