Kylie Ladd is a novelist and freelance writer. She has published four novels: After the Fall, Last Summer, which was highly commended in the FAW Christina Stead Award for fiction, Into My Arms, chosen as one of Get Reading's 50 Books You Can't Put Down for 2013, and her latest, Mothers and Daughters.
The English Patient is my literary touchstone, the book I come back to again and again to be soothed, inspired and awed by the magic that words on a page can create. Following the fates of a disparate group of characters at the end of World War II, The English Patient is a novel, at its core, about compulsion and patriotism, about what, exactly, is worth dying for. Ondaatje was already a poet before he turned to prose, and this is evident in every sentence. Not a word is wasted; every image is polished until it glows. I would happily sell my soul to write like this.
