Synopsis:

A winner of the Booker Prize, the Canada Australia Prize, and the Canada Governor General's Award, the critically acclaimed author of The English Patient brings to life the story of a forensic pathologist, who returns to Sri Lanka--after fifteen years abroad--to assist in identifying victims of the country's civil war.


Review:

"The aftershocks of the recent bloody civil war in Sri Lanka...are explored with commanding poetic intensity....The reader becomes lost in thickets of speculation and reverie. Impressive and often fascinating, but not a success. There's ample evidence that Ondaatje worked diligently, and perhaps for several years, on ANIL'S GHOST. But he doesn't seem to have finished it."

Kirkus, 03/15/2000

Review:

"In the scenes that center around Sailor, the characters remain tense and convincing, even when they bumble and misread each other. The sections of the novel that are less effective wander into the consciousnesses of the often-opaque characters, but not always to much avail. Eventually we learn crucial facts from their pasts--heartbreaking losses, violent betrayals--but by that time, it's easy to have become frustrated with their mercurial natures."

Carolyn Alessio, Chicago Tribune Books, 04/23/2000

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2001. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 132 mm. Brand New Book. With his first novel since the internationally acclaimed The English Patient, Booker Prize--winning author Michael Ondaatje gives us a work displaying all the richness of imagery and language and the piercing emotional truth that we have come to know as the hallmarks of his writing. Anil s Ghost transports us to Sri Lanka, a country steeped in centuries of tradition, now forced into the late twentieth century 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.
