The Cinnamon Peeler
is an excellent collection, and I see we have a few used copies. If you like Ondaatje's prose, the poems are a great resource, small helpings you can return to again and again. Vivid but always human (and often funny): APPLICATION FOR A DRIVING LICENSE Two birds loved in a flurry of red feathers like a burst cottonball, continuing while I drove over them. I am a good driver. Nothing shocks me. <> But have you read
In the Skin of a Lion
? It's a gorgeous novel -- the book that made me read all the others.

My kind: eclectic novelist with an eclectic life in CT, comes with own pool cue.

My kind: brown-eyed, youngest child, southpaw with a weakness for southern cooking and guitar-based indie rock. But now I sound like someone writing a personals ad. So how about, instead: I have never received a pony as a birthday gift, though when I was six or seven my parents got me a golden retriever, who became, thereafter, "my dog," mostly, I believe, so that responsibility for backyard clean-up would fall to me. I've never read any of Ondaatje's poetry. Should I?
