Having won the Goncourt Prize in 1956 there is clearly a pedigree to this book. Some of the language is now a tad dated & the back-tracking of the narrative can be wearying but this is nevertheless a novel of depth about nationalism, what it means to be humane and the need to protect elephants, both real and virtual.
