Description


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.

About the Author


Michael Ondaatje was born in Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) in 1943. He moved first to England and then, in 1962, to Canada, where he has taught at the University of Western Ontario, London, and Glendon College, Toronto. A poet and novelist, he has had a continuing interest in theatre, film and publishing. His novel "The English Patient" (1992) won the Trillium Award, the Governor General's Award, and the Booker Prize, and it was made into a successful film. "The Passions of Lalla" won the fiction award in the 1982 CBC Canadian Literary Awards and was published in "Running in the Family" (1982).
