Real Life & Fictional Tragedies of Being Richard Parker

Even though it’s not yet Friday, I thought I’d share with you this article Freaky (Factual) Tale  Friday which features a rather disturbing coincidence related to Edgar Allan Poe and his novel The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket. One of the comments on this article (just scroll down to see these) is what inspired me to read Life of Pi by Yann Martel as it seems that one of the characters in Poe’s book, the tiger in Martel’s novel, and the real life victim of strange coincidences mentioned in the article, all bear the same name of Richard Parker. Chilling and cool at the same time! :)
