Ships from and sold by Fort Hill International. I laughed and cried my way through the Facts Behind the Helsinki Roccamatios. It was worth getting the entire set for this story alone.

This is Yann Martel’s first book, published eight years before his breakthrough novel, the Booker Prize-winning Life Of Pi. Turn to any page in the collection and it’s obvious that he has talent, passion and a keen philosophical spirit. The stories feel personal in the best way, urgent dispatches from the trenches of the examined (young) life. I did like a couple of the stories collected here a lot, finding them inventive and creative, but the second did not capture my attention at all.

If you are a Yann Martel fan, you will not want to miss this collection of extraordinarily compelling stories. I write fiction and, to provide myself with daily inspiration, I copied the following sentence from Martel's novel "Beatrice & Virgil" and posted it on the cabinet door above my desk: "There's nothing like the unimaginable to make people believe." Writing the unimaginable that makes ME believe is only one of Martel's great strengths, with "Life of Pi" as primary example, and the stories in "The Facts Behind the Helsinki Roccamatios" also share this characteristic.

I am carrying around Yann Martel's- this one--right now in my purse. His writing is always worth rereading. Brilliant. I can see how he became the writer he is today in these early stories. A must read for any Yann Martel Lovers or anyone that truly appreciates fine prose with a heart.

These four stories are so different it's hard to believe they were all penned by the same author. All are absorbing and memorable, however, the prize goes to the title story. I laughed and cried my way through the Facts Behind the Helsinki Roccamatios. It was worth getting the entire set for this story alone. The other 3 stories then become bonuses in a most worthwhile collection!

This is a collection of short stories by author Yann Martel, predating his Booker Prize winning 'The Life of Pi'. All of the stories offer insightful views of humanity, told in Martel's simple, anecdotal style, but it is the penultimate 'Manners of Dying' that I found most remarkable. By way of a letter to the mother of an executed man, written multiple times, Martel changed my intellectual objection to capitol punishment into a visceral disgust of same. It is a brilliant piece of writing, which also allows the reader a glimpse of the hard social criticism that underpins all of Yann Martel's work.

I think martel's introduction to this collection of essays is perfect. It talks about how he loved the themes of these stories and is proud of his early works. I liked the Helsinki Roccamatios--sad and well worded.
the other stories lost me. I think I know where he wanted to go with these, but I feel only the author could understand the real motivation.

After reading Pi, I was dying to read more Yann Martel. The next books I picked were quite different from that beautiful story. I enjoy reading his writing quite a bit, but he picks very difficult subject matter, and the Holocaust plays heavily in his serious themes. Several times the stories made me cry.

Life of Pi was superb. Glad Mr. Martel matured in his writing for he is
very talented and imaginative. This book was short stories, but none
really showed the same spark as Pi.
Any lover of the written word will enjoy Martel's stories, his play with concepts, His understanding of lifes pain and greaving
