Recensioni

Sul finire del secondo conflitto mondiale tre uomini e una donna si rifugiano in una villa semidistrutta sulle colline intorno a Firenze. In una stanza al piano superiore viene sistemato il misterioso "paziente inglese", gravemente ustionato in un incidente aereo.

Ondaatje conduce il lettore nella Ceylon degli anni Venti sulle tracce dei ricordi dell'eccentrica nonna Lalla, di qualche vecchia fotografia e di un carnet di ballo ingiallito dal tempo. E ci si ritrova così in un'epoca spensierata e gioiosa, tra personaggi usciti dalle pagine di Francis Scott Fitzgerald e paesaggi che ricordano i romanzi di Kipling, in mondo lussureggiante di odori e sapori, emozioni e passioni, teatro di sbronze colossali e amori travolgenti.
