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.

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.
