New book trailer for Life of Pi author Yann Martel’s The High Mountains of Portugal

The High Mountains of Portugal, the eagerly awaited new novel from Yann Martel – the author of Life of Pi – is on its way and here at Book People, we’re all very excited. In fact, we’re so thrilled that our videographer Ollie has put together a very special exclusive book trailer for the novel:

Part-quest, part-ghost story and part contemporary fable, the book offers a haunting exploration of great love and great loss. It’s filled with tenderness, humour and endless surprise as it takes readers on a road trip through Portugal in the last century – and right through the human soul.

As always, we will be selling this novel at a truly unbelievable price. One of our hand-picked favourites, the book will be available to order from 2 February and will have a saving of at least 75% off RRP.

We’re also offering review copies to any book bloggers interested in reading the novel in exchange for posting a link to the video and website. If you’re interested, please contact Oliver Trimble: oliver.trimble@thebookpeople.co.uk
