Take a teenage boy fascinated by spirituality and put him on a lifeboat with a Zebra, an Orang-Utan, a Hyena and a hungry Bengal Tiger. The result is bizarre and intriguing, a modern fable on human nature, and a journey into the absurd. This Booker Prize winning novel merges zoology, theology, religion and adventure to create a completely unique masterpiece. Rarely does a book tick so many boxes at once.
