Host John Ydstie talks to Canadian author Yann Martel about his novel Life of Pi, which won Britain's Mann-Booker Prize this year. It's a meditation on the role of religion in modern life; the story's main character is a practicing Muslim, Christian and Hindu. (Life of Pi is published by Harcourt).
