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
