The English Patient: Shortlisted for the Golden Man Booker Prize
A Paperback edition by Michael Ondaatje (May 26, 2018)
SHORTLISTED FOR THE GOLDEN MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018
The final curtain is closing on the Second World War and in an abandoned Italian village Hana, a nurse, tends to her sole remaining patient. Rescued from a burning plane, the anonymous Englishman is damaged beyond recognition and haunted by painful memories.
The only clue Hana has to unlocking his past is the one thing he clung on to through the fire - a copy of The Histories by Herodotus, covered with hand-written notes detailing a tragic love affair.
