The English Patient - Michael Ondaatje


This used paperback copy of "The English Patient" by Michael Ondaatje was published in 1993 by Vintage Books. The book is slightly beat up, but the text is still very readable.

From GoodReads:
"With ravishing beauty and unsettling intelligence, Michael Ondaatje's Booker Prize-winning novel traces the intersection of four damaged lives in an Italian villa at the end of World War II. Hana, the exhausted nurse; the maimed thief, Caravaggio; the wary sapper, Kip: each is haunted by the riddle of the English patient, the nameless, burned man who lies in an upstairs room and whose memories of passion, betrayal, and rescue illuminate this book like flashes of heat lightning."
