Elimination Dance = La Danse Eliminatoire by Michael Ondaatje

Book Description

Poetry. Instructions: An elimination dance begins with a crowded dance floor. At a signal, the band stops playing and the announcer reads an elimination, say, "Any lover who has gone into a flower shop on Valentine's Day and asked for clitoris when he meant clematis." Any dancer answering this description must sit down, and his partner is also disqualified. The process continues (e.g. "Any person who has burst into tears at the Liquor Control Board") until a single couple remains. And now, the post-Meech Lake edition.

Cat's Table by Michael Ondaatje Cat's Table, Paperback (July 2012)

In the early 1950s, an eleven-year-old boy boards a huge liner bound for England - a 'castle that was to cross the sea'. As the ship makes its way across the Indian Ocean, through the Suez Canal, into the Mediterranean, the boys become involved in the worlds and stories of the adults around them, tumbling from one adventure and to another.

Handwriting by Michael Ondaatje Handwriting, Paperback (September 2011)

An elegy for lost childhood, for a culture and language lost to the turmoil of history, and it is also a glimpse of the source of the writer's delicate, mysterious imagination. By focussing on writing about beautiful things, it takes the poems beyond narrative to these sensual images - given to us in a language that is cursive and exquisite.
