1 Ondaatje, Michael Anil's Ghost
Toronto, ON, Canada McClelland & Stewart 2000 077106893X / 9780771068935 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover SIGNED by the Author
As New in an As New dustjacket. Black boards. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in silver. Textured endpapers. 311pps. A flawless copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. Yet to be read. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is equally fine; the original price is intact. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the title-page. A splendid collector's copy. ".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."
