English Patient/Ondaatje, Mich/Paper/0747572593/S036-D
The final curtain is closing on the Second World War, and Hana, a nurse, stays behind in an abandoned Italian villa to tend to her only remaining patient. Rescued by Bedouins from a burning plane, he is English, anonymous, damaged beyond any recognition and haunted by his memories of passion and betrayal. The only clue Hana has to his past is the one thing he clung on to during the fire - a copy of The Histories by Herodotus, covered with hand-written notes describing a painful and ultimately tragic love affair.
