Read by Alan Cumming

7 CDs, 8 hours

From the author of The English Patient and winner of the Booker Prize, the Canada Australia Prize, and the Canada Governor General's Award, comes a new novel of electric artistry and impact confirming Michael Ondaatje's reputation as one of the world's foremost writers.

The time is our own time.  The place Sri Lanka, the island nation off the southern tip of India, a country formerly known as Ceylon, steeped in centuries of cultural achievement and tradition smf forced into the late 20th century by the ravages of civil war and the consequences of a government divided against itself.

Into this maelstrom steps a young woman, Anil Tissera, born in Sri Lanka, educated in America, a forensic anthropologist sent by an international human rights group to work with local officials to discover the source of the organized campaigns of murder engulfing the island.

Bodies are discovered.  Skeletons.  And particularly one, nicknamed "Sailor."  What follows, in a novel rich with character, emotion, and incident, is a story about love, about family, about identity and the unknown enemy, about the quest to unlock the hidden past and all propelled by a riveting mystery.  

Unfolding against the deeply evocative background of Sri Lanka's landscape and ancient civilization, Anil's Ghost is a compelling literary spellbinder and worthy successor to The English Patient, a novel admired and treasured by countless readers around the world.

Synopsis:

In modern-day Sri Lanka, a forensic anthropologist attempts to find the source of organized campaigns of murder on the island. Unabridged. 5 CDs.
