Editor's Note: Yann Martel shot to worldwide fame with his book, Life of Pie, a charming parable about a man adrift on the Pacific in a boat that he shares with various animals, including a tiger.  Martel's book won the Man Booker, a coveted literary prize, in 2002.  Life of Pie was translated into numerous languages, and Martel even received a fan note from President Obama.  Martel's latest novel, Beatrice and Virgil, has not been well received by the critics.  Once again, animals are prominent.  This time, however, the subject is the holocaust.
