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.

Taloyhtiön ulkoremonttia tekevien ilmeisen ammattitaidottomien ja huolimattomien korjausmiesten takia kotini lainehti vettä kahdesti kahden viikon sisällä. Purkuun menevät niin lattiat kuin (pieni) osa seiniä ja kattoakin, mutta kun sen ensimmäisen tulvan jäljiltä olin nostanut kastumiselta varjeltuneet kirjat sivuun ja tarpeeksi korkealle, uusia kirjavahinkoja ei tullut. Nyt asunto on kuitenkin tyhjennettävä, joten kirjat(kin) ovat vailla uutta kotia.

OBCZ Columbuksen hylly on jäänyt kauppakeskuksessa työmaa-aitojen sisälle, joten vien aamulla kirjoja Kampin kierrätyshyllyyn. Käy nappaamassa sieltä luettavaa!

Enjoy reading!
