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.
