Anil's Ghost by Michael Ondaatje

The new novel by the internationally acclaimed Booker winner will come to readers of The English Patient as a surprise, although once more the unmistakable richness of language and emotional power is there in full force. The result is a profoundly disturbing and timeless work of art and a revelatory journey.

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 the civil war. Into this maelstrom steps Anil Tissera, a young woman born in Sri Lanka, as a forensic anthropologist sent by an international human rights group to investigate the campaigns of organised slaughter 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 - s story driven by a riveting mystery.
