Divisadero, Michael Ondaatje,
McClelland & Stewart, Toronto, 2007
What a ride! Michael Ondaatje's clear perspective into the intimacies of his broken characters is powerful. And they are all broken - by loss, by love, by life itself. Narrated by Anna, whose past is revealed within the story of French poet Lucien Segura, scene after scene, situation after graphic situation, these people come alive
I have loved Michael Ondaatje's words since I first discovered them, introduced by an English Teacher who I believe saw that I loved words as much as he did. Thanks, Mr. Lee.
