Anil's Ghost by Michael Ondaatje

Date and Time: March 19, 2019, 7:00 PM CT

Location: Friends of the Baldwin City Library, 800 7th St, Baldwin City
(view on google maps)

From the TALK series, Entangled World
Discussion Leader: Kevin Rabas

Canadian novelist Michael Ondaatje explores his own Sri Lankan roots in his fourth novel, limning the violence of the conflict between the Tamil Tigers and the Sri Lankan state. Anil has fled her increasingly violent homeland to train in America as a forensic archaeologist. She comes to Sri Lanka on a UN mission after work in the killing fields of Guatemala's "dirty war." She is teamed with local archaeologist Sarath, whose Buddhist perspective and murky political connections balance her Western perspective on events.
