“The English Patient” is a novel written by Michael Ondaatje. The book was first published in 1992 and went on to win the Booker Prize for Fiction and the Governor General’s Award in Canada. It is considered one of Ondaatje’s most acclaimed works.

Set during World War II, “The English Patient” is a complex and multilayered narrative that weaves together the stories of four characters whose lives become intertwined at an Italian villa. The central character, known as the English patient, is a severely burned and unidentified man who recounts his life before and during the war. The other characters include Hana, a nurse; Caravaggio, a Canadian thief; and Kip, an Indian sapper.

The novel explores themes of love, identity, war, and the impact of historical events on individual lives. Ondaatje’s writing is known for its lyrical and poetic style, and “The English Patient” is celebrated for its narrative structure and evocative prose.

The novel was later adapted into a film in 1996, directed by Anthony Minghella. The film adaptation won multiple Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

If you enjoy literary fiction with intricate storytelling and rich character development, “The English Patient” may be a compelling read. Michael Ondaatje’s writing style and the novel’s exploration of human relationships and the effects of war contribute to its lasting appeal.
