About the author (2007)

Yann Martel is the prize-winning author of The Facts Behind the Helsinki Roccamatios, and of Self. His novel Life of Pi won the 2002 Man Booker Prize, was shortlisted for the Governor General’s Literary Award and is an international bestseller. Yann Martel currently lives in Saskatoon.

Tomislav Torjanac was born in 1972 in Croatia, where he lives and works as a freelance illustrator. His life is not unlike his favourite medium (oil paints) or his style: slow and quiet, but colourful. When he’s not painting, he likes reading, listening to music, walking, trying to outstare his neurotic cat Puki or spending non-quality time with his two dogs Nero and His Brother. Amongst other things, he’s done many book covers and illustrated a few children’s books, including James Joyce’s The Cat and the Devil.
