Picked up on my last trip to the Book Thing, for BC.

From the cover -
With unsettling beauty and intelligence, Michael Ondaatje's Booker Prize-winning novel traces the intersection of four damaged lives in an abandoned Italian villa at the end of World War II.
The nurse Hana, exhausted by death, obsessively tends to her last surviving patient. Carvaggio, the thief, tries to reimagine who he is, now that is hands are hopelessly maimed. The Indian sapper Kip searches for hidden bombs in a landscape where nothing is safe but himself. And at the center of this labyrinth lies the English patient, nameless and hideously burned, a man who is both a riddle and a provocation to his companions - and whose memories of suffering, rescue, and betrayal illuminate this book like flashes of heat lightning.

I really enjoyed the beautiful writing in this novel.

I purchased this book at our local Goodwill in a suburb of Des Moines, IA and will pass this on to my mother. This organization is such a neat idea!
