YANN MARTEL – CANADA150

One of Canada's best-known writers worldwide is no doubt Yann Martel, a Fransaskois who lives in Saskatoon.

Born in Spain to French-Canadian parents, Yann Martel lived in several countries prior to returning to Canada in the late 1970s. He went to university and spent a few years travelling abroad before deciding, at age 27, to devote himself to full-time writing.

His greatest literary success, Life of Pi, was published in 2001. International recognition and many awards followed and, in 2012, director Ang Lee made the novel into a movie.

As an engaged and political writer, Yann Martel undertook a project called "What is Stephen Harper Reading". Every two weeks, the writer sent a literary work, accompanied by a letter, to the Prime Minister.

Yann Martel published his fourth novel. The High Mountains of Portugal, in 2016.
