The international bestseller about friendship, second chances, and a tiny glow-in-the-dark pink elephant

The most enjoyable novel I’ve read all year’ Elizabeth McKenzie, author of The Portable Veblen

'I loved Elefant! It was a complete tonic' Seni Glaister, author of The Museum of Things Left Behind

It's easy to fall in love with this novel because it's easy to fall in love with its main character, a tiny, glowing, pink elephant.’ Homer Hickam, author of Carry Albert Home

What would you do if you woke up to see a living, breathing, tiny, glowing, pink elephant? If you’re anything like Schoch, who lives on the streets of Zürich and is decidedly down on his luck, you might well think it’s time to put away the bottle before your hallucinations get any stranger, and go back to sleep.

But what if the tiny pink elephant is still there when you wake up? And clearly needs someone to take care of it? And what if you discover that it’s been created through genetic engineering, by a group of scientists who just want to use it to get rich and don’t care about the elephant’s welfare? And that they’re in cahoots with a circus and will stop at nothing to get it back?

What if this little elephant is about to change your life?
