Overview

Michael Ondaatje`s life is as intense?and at times as dramatic?as his poetry and fiction. His writing is usually inspired by a single persistent image or vision?and no wonder, for as Ed Jewinski`s biography reveals, much of Ondaatje`s life has been a series of intense moments followed by ruptures and dislocations. This illustrated biography links Ondaatje`s relationships with his family to the later mature works, such as Running in the Family and The English Patient (for which he won the Booker Prize).
