Description

With Dr. Abraham Verghese (Cutting for Stone)

Get a glimpse into the inner workings of Michael Ondaatje’s literary artistry, which has influenced an entire generation of writers and earned him the prestigious Man Booker Prize. Best known as a novelist (The English Patient, Divisadero, The Cat’s Table), Ondaatje has also delved into poetry, memoir and film. Regardless of genre, his work reveals a passion for defying conventional form.

"Each of [Ondaatje’s] books is filled with passages of such finesse and vividness that they become part of us. He is a writer whose best paragraphs hover just over the page, then fly into the mind."
– New Yorker

"Ondaatje couldn’t write a banal sentence if he tried. The tender weight and candlelight hush of Ondaatje’s prose render scene after scene indelible."
– Pico Iyer
