TIL the book "Life of Pi" was inspired by "Max and the Cats" by Brazilian Jewish author Moacyr Scliar

Actually, not even the book itself, but a review of the book!

Martel thanked Scliar for “the spark of life,” but later said he had not read Scliar’s novel, only a review of it.

Moacyr Jaime Scliar (March 23, 1937 – February 27, 2011) was a Brazilian writer and physician. Most of his writing centers on issues of Jewish identity in the Diaspora and particularly on being Jewish in Brazil.
