Not wanted on the voyage – Timothy Findley

Not Wanted on the Voyage is a fable based on Noah’s Ark, by way of 100 years of solitude.  There are angels and talking animals and I think it’s all rather a tragedy in the end… though not totally depressing.

Impressive, and worth the work of reading it.

Take a look at this excellent review of this book, which does it much better justice.
