The English Patient is my literary touchstone, the book I come back to again and again to be soothed, inspired and awed by the magic that words on a page can create. Following the fates of a disparate group of characters at the end of World War II, The English Patient is a novel, at its core, about compulsion and patriotism, about what, exactly, is worth dying for. Ondaatje was already a poet before he turned to prose, and this is evident in every sentence. Not a word is wasted; every image is polished until it glows. I would happily sell my soul to write like this.
