English Patient by Michael Ondaatje
Book DescriptionThe final curtain is closing on the Second World War, and Hana, a nurse, stays behind in an abandoned Italian villa to tend to her only remaining patient. Rescued by Bedouins from a burning plane, he is English, anonymous, damaged beyond recognition and haunted by his memories of passion and betrayal. The only clue Hana has to his past is the one thing he clung on to through the fire - a copy of The Histories by Herodotus, covered with hand-written notes describing a painful and ultimately tragic love affair.

Books By Author 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, Paperback (September 2011)» View all books by Michael Ondaatje
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.
