Elephant

Published by Diogenes as Elefant
English Title: Elephant

An edge-of-the-seat thriller and a great novel about the world we live in, about people on the margins of society and about those who speculate on big money.

A creature that enchants people: a small pink elephant that glows in the dark like an alien. Only one person knows where it comes from: the genetic scientist Roux. He has big plans for this global sensation. Or is it something sacred that must be hidden and protected? That’s what Kaung thinks, a Burmese elephant-whisperer who was present at the animal’s birth. An exploration of borderline territories, in more ways than one.
