(Winner of the Man Booker Prize and the Governor General's Award) The inspiration for the Oscar-winning 1996 film starring Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche, Michael Ondaatje's 1992 novel traces the intersection of four damaged lives in an Italian villa at the end of World War II. Hana, an exhausted nurse; Caravaggio, a maimed thief; and Kip, a wary sapper, are all haunted by the riddle of the English patient, the nameless, burned man who lies in an upstairs room, while the man's own memories of passion, betrayal, and rescue illuminate the story in brilliant flashes. This book will have a retail sticker on the cover.
