Life of Pi


by Yann Martel

Life of Pi Part 2, Chapter 76 Summary

How It All Goes Down

  • Pi begins to clean out the feces in RP's lair.
  • RP tried to hide his bowel movements, and Pi understands this as "a sign of deference."
  • Pi picks up RP's feces and smells them and blows his whistle – all of which show RP that Pi is in charge of the lifeboat.
