Product description

Review

"Our book of the year – and maybe of Ondaatje's career." (Daily Telegraph **Books of the Year**)

"Michael Ondaatje’s Warlight is a rare and beautiful thing – a deeply retrospective novel about war secrets that feels neither overstated nor overly ethereal. In sumptuous prose, Ondaatje limns the psyche of a man still trying to make sense of his complicated relationships and the mysteries surrounding his absent parents. One of the most absorbing books I’ve read all year." (Esi Edugyan Times Literary Supplement **Books of the Year 2018**)

"Warlight sucked me in deeper than any novel I can remember… fiction as rich, as beautiful, as melancholy as life itself." (Alex Preston Observer)

"From the very first sentence you’re desperate to find out what happens next… All is slowly, tantalisingly revealed, in flashbacks, fragments, digressions and stories within stories, narrated in majestic Ondaatjean style." (Ian Sansom New Statesman)

"In Warlight we have a writer who knows exactly what he’s doing – and has constructed something of real emotional and psychological heft, delicate melancholy and yet, frequently, page-turning plottiness. I haven’t read a better novel this year." (Sam Leith Daily Telegraph)

Book Description
