Cover TextWINNER OF THE GOLDEN MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018
'Magnificent' Sunday Times
'The best piece of fiction I've read in years' Independent on Sunday
The final curtain is closing on the Second World War and in an abandoned Italian village. Hana, a nurse, tends to her sole remaining patient. Rescued from a burning plane, the anonymous Englishman is damaged beyond recognition and haunted by painful memories.
The only clue Hana has to unlocking his past is the one thing he clung on to through the fire - a copy of The Histories by Herodotus, covered with hand-written notes detailing a tragic love affair.
SummaryGegen Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs treffen in einer zerbombten Villa in der Nähe von Florenz vier Menschen unterschiedlicher Nationalität zusammen, zwischen denen ein eigenartiges Beziehungsgeflecht entsteht. Jeder der vier, drei Männer und eine Frau, sie ist Krankenschwester, erfindet sich eine eigene Welt. Doch im Laufe der Zeit offenbart sich ihr Innenleben und ihre wahre Geschichte. Die Zeit scheint in Michael Ondaatjes Roman aufgehoben, und doch erzählt er vom Ende der alten und dem Entstehen einer neuen Welt.WINNER OF THE GOLDEN MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2018
