Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Una novela tan desgarradora como hermosa, un canto a la dignidad del ser humano. Por el autor de El paciente inglés.

El fantasma de Anil nos lleva a Sri Lanka, un país ahogado por siglos de tradición y obligado a entrar en el final del siglo XX entre los estragos causados por una guerra civil.

En mitad de esta vorágine, emerge Anil Tissera, una joven nacida en Sri Lanka y educada en Inglaterra y América que ha vuelto a su hogar como la antropóloga forense encargada de descubrir el origen de la serie orquestada de asesinatos que envuelven la isla.

Con el telón de fondo de una civilización extinta y un paisaje elocuente, Ondaatje nos narra, con su estilo inconfundible, una historia sobre el amor, la familia, la identidad y los enemigos insospechados.

Novela galardonada con el Premio Médicis, el Irish Times International Fiction Prize y el Premio Giller.

Reseñas:
«Auténtico heredero de Faulkner y García Márquez, Ondaatje cuenta historias que a menudo parecen colisiones entre el tiempo y el espacio.»
The Boston Globe

«Uno de los autores más innovadores y liberadores de nuestra época.»
The Guardian

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

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.
