With his first novel since the Booker Prize-winning The English Patient, internationally acclaimed author Michael Ondaatje gives us a work displaying all the richness of imagery and language and piercing emotional truth that we have come to know as the hall- marks of his writing. Amil’s Ghost transports us to Sri Lanka, a country steeped in centuries of tradition, now forced into the modern world by the ravages of civil war. Into this maelstrom steps Anil Tissera, a young woman born in Sri Lanka, educated in England and America, who returns to her homeland as a forensic anthropologist sent by an international human rights group to discover the source of the organized campaigns of murder engulfing the island. What follows is a story about love, about family, about identity, about the unknown enemy, about the quest to unlock the hidden past- a story propelled by a riveting mystery. Unfolding against the deeply evocative background of Sri Lanka’s landscape and ancient civilization, Anil’s Ghost is a literary spellbinder- Michael Ondaatje’s most powerful novel yet.
