About this title


The Adventures of Mr Marigold, Michael Tobias's 30th book, a modest tale, is nearest in nuance and thinking to the Middle Ages' voyage extraordinaire genre, to utopian realism of the Renaissance, and to 1930s French existentialism. Tobias, who in addition to his many other books, has also written, directed and/or produced over 100 films. He is an internationally-renowned author and ecologist and has worked in over 50 countries. However, he feels most poetically at home in New Zealand, where his long-time friendship with Craig Potton - many of whose photographs illustrate the novel - has blossomed into this stunning collaboration.

About the Author:

Michael Charles Tobias is the author of nearly 50 books, many hundreds of essays, and the writer, director, and/or producer of some 170 films. He is probably best known for his novel, The Adventures of Mr Marigold. Tobias lives with his life-long partner and wife, the prolific ecologist, explorer, author, filmmaker, photographer, musician and philanthropist, Jane Gray Morrison, whose own books and films include such works as God’s Country: The New Zealand Factor, “A Day in the Life of Ireland,” “Antarctica: The Last Continent,” the ten-hour dramatic miniseries, “Voice of the Planet,” Donkey: The Mystique of Equus Asinus, the PBS feature film trilogy, “Mad Cowboy,” “No Vacancy,” and “Hotspots,” the coffee table work, Sanctuary: Global Oases of Innocence, Why Life Matters: Fifty Ecosystems From the Heart & Mind, and – as Goodwill Ambassador to Ecuador’s Yasuní National Park – the film “Yasuní – A Meditation on Life” that premiered at the United Nations Rio+20 Summit.
