Summary
A collection of novel excerpts, poetry, and memoir from the Booker Prize-winning author features selections from the novels In the Skin of the Lion, Anil's Ghost, and The English Patient, as well as excerpts from the author's autobiography Running in the Family, sections from The Collected Works of Billy the Kid, and poetry. Original. 15,000 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: In his novels, poetry, and memoirs, Booker Prize winner Michael Ondaatje moves from the blasted landscape of Billy the Kid in 1880s New Mexico to the New Orleans jazz world of the legendary Buddy Bolden at the turn of the century, from his native Sri Lanka to the African desert of World War II. Compassionate, lyrical, spellbinding, the work he has created unfolds with mystery and eloquence and enlarges our literature.

Included in Vintage Ondaatje are portions of the novels Anil’s Ghost, In the Skin of the Lion, Coming Through Slaughter, and The English Patient; the memoir Running in the Family; sections from The Collected Works of Billy the Kid; and a selection of the poetry.

Vintage Readers are a perfect introduction to some of the great modern writers, presented in attractive, affordable paperback editions.
