Ageless. Sexless. Deathless. Timeless. Pilgrim is a man who cannot die, an astounding character in a novel of the cataclysmic contest between creation and destruction. Pilgrim is Timothy FindleyÆs latest masterwork, a finalist for the Giller Prize, and a national bestseller that has smashed the authorÆs own impressive sales records. Recently published in the US, Pilgrim is gathering rave reviews, and will be released in the UK this spring.

It is 1912 and Pilgrim has been admitted to the Burgh÷lzli Psychiatric Clinic in Znrich, Switzerland, having failedùonce againùto commit suicide. Over the next two years, it is up to Carl Jung, self-professed mystical scientist of the mind, to help Pilgrim unlock his unconsciousness, etched as it is with myriad sufferings and hopes of history. Is Pilgrim mad, or is he condemned to live forever, witness to the terrible tragedy and beauty of the human condition?

Both intimate and expansive in its scope, with an absorbing parade of charactersùmythic, fictional and historicalùPilgrim is a fiercely original and powerful story from one of our most distinguished artists.
