Anil's Ghost

Ausgezeichnet mit dem The Kiriyama Fiction Prize 2000 und dem Giller Prize 2000

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 a bloody civil war. Enter Anil Tissera, a young woman and forensic anthropologist born in Sri Lanka but educted in the West, sent by an international human rights group to identify the victims of the murder campaigns sweeping the island.
When Anil discovers that the bones found in an ancient burial site are in fact those of a much more recent victim, her search for the terrible truth hidden in her homeland begins. What follows is a story about love, about family, about identity - a story driven by a riventing mystery.
Rezension
"There is much to astonish, to disturb and to admire in this dense book... a rare triumph" Guardian
Portrait

Michael Ondaatje was born in Sri Lanka in 1943. In the 1950s he moved to England, and went to school in south London. In 1962 he emigrated to Canada, where he has lived ever since. His books include his memoir, Running in the Family, numerous collections of poetry, and five novels - including The English Patient which won the 1992 Booker Prize. His latest novel is The Cat's Table, published by Cape in hardcover in September 2011.

Zitat
"There is much to astonish, to disturb and to admire in this dense book... a rare triumph" Guardian "This is why I read, this is why literature matters, this, in short, is IT!... By the closing pages Anil's Ghost has come as close to a holy book as a novel ever should" Independent "A deeply felt and highly accomplished survey of devastated paradise... which both plunges you into the carnage of Sri Lanka's civil war and keeps you aware of the island's past splendours of civilisation. Barbarity and art hauntingly mingle in this fine book" Sunday Times "It is Ondaatje's extraordinary achievement to use magic in order to make the blood of his own country real... Nowhere has he written more beautifully" New York Times Book Review "A truly wondrous book... I was as enthralled as I have not been since The English Patient" -- Ariel Dorfman, Author Of Death And The Maiden
