9780679772668: In the Skin of a Lion

Bristling with intelligence and shimmering with romance, this novel tests the boundary between history and myth. Patrick Lewis arrives in Toronto in the 1920s and earns his living searching for a vanished millionaire and tunneling beneath Lake Ontario. In the course of his adventures, Patrick's life intersects with those of characters who reappear in Ondaatje's Booker Prize-winning The English Patient. 256 pp.

From the Back Cover:

"A triumph -- a powerful and revelatory accomplishment." -- The Times Literary Supplement

"Splendidly evocative and entertaining." -- The Toronto Star

"A brilliantly imaginative blend of history, lore, passion and poetry." -- Russell Banks

"What is most moving is the human connectedness of this book… so densly erotic, so subtly sensual, so intensely responsive." -- Malahat Review

"Ondaatje has written into the vivid life of fiction a part of the history of the building of Toronto as no official history would have conceived it and as no official history can now erase it." -- Adele Wiseman

" In the Skin of a Lion is an act of magic!" -- Alberto Manguel

“Beautiful … I urge you to read this book.” -- The New York Times

About the Author:
