Újabb Booker-díj?

Ondaatje úgy tűnik nem tud hibázni.

A közönség szemében Michael Ondaatje gyönyörű regénye, Az angol beteg (The English Patient) még a kiemelkedő művek között is a legelőkelőbb helyen szerepel. Ezért is döntöttek úgy, hogy ezért a művéért ő kapja meg az Arany Man Booker-díjat.
A szerző sikere továbbra is töretlen, ugyanis új könyve, a Warlight szerepel az idei longlisted listában, így megvan az esély arra, hogy újból a magáénak tudhassa ezt az elismerést.
Két testvér története bontakozik ki az olvasók előtt, akik a második világháború poklában elszakadnak szüleiktől, és egy csapat rejtélyes, kétes hírű ember gyámsága alá kerülnek. Ez az időszak kitörölhetetlen nyomot hagy a gyerekek életében, ami a jövőben is meghatározó lesz számukra.
Melankólia, szépség és izgalom váltogatják egymást a regény lapjain, amely felejthetetlen élményt fog nyújtani az olvasók számára.

    Ondaatje,Michael
    Kiadó: Random House
    Warlight is a vivid, thrilling novel of violence and love, intrigue and desire. It is 1945, and London is still reeling from the Blitz and years of war. 14-year-old Nathaniel and his sister, Rachel, are apparently abandoned by their parents, left in thecare of an enigmatic figure named The Moth. They suspect he might be a criminal, and grow both more convinced and less concerned as they get to know his eccentric crew of friends: men and women with a shared history, all of whom seem determined now toprotect, and educate (in rather unusual ways) Rachel and Nathaniel. But are they really what and who they claim to be? A dozen years later, Nathaniel begins to uncover all he didn't know or understand in that time, and it is this journey - throughreality, recollection, and imagination - that is told in this magnificent novel.

    The English Patient

    Ondaatje,Michael
    Kiadó: Random House
    Michael Ondaatje's three previous novels have each been met with the highest praise: for their startling narrative inventiveness, the richness of their imagery and emotion, and the spellbinding quality of their language. When In the Skin of a Lion waspublished in 1987, Carolyn Kizer, writing in The New York Times Book Review, called Ondaatje a beautiful writer... brilliantly gifted. And Tom Clark wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle that Ondaatje handles fiction with the deceptive touch of amagician. Now, with The English Patient, he gives us his most stunningly original and lyric novel yet. During the final moments of World War II, in a deserted Italian villa, four people come together: a young nurse, her will broken, all her energyfocused on her last, dying patient, a man in whom she has seen something she wanted to learn, to grow into and hide in... the patient: an unknown Englishman, survivor of a plane crash, his mind awash with a life's worth of secrets and passions ... athief whose skills have made him one of the war's heroes, and one of its casualties ... an Indian soldier in the British army, an expert at bomb disposal whose three years at war have taught him that the only thing safe is himself. Slowly, they beginto reveal themselves to each other, the stories of their pasts and of the present unfolding in scene after haunting scene, taking us into the Sahara, the English countryside, down the streets of London during the Blitz, into the makeshift army hospitalsof Italy, and through the battered gardens and rooms of the villa. And with these stories, Ondaatje weaves a complex tapestry of image and emotion, recollection and observation: the paths anddetails of four diverse lives caught and changed and nowinextricably connected by the brutal, improbable circumstances of war.
