Reviews

  • 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
