Review of WARLIGHT

Two personal notes before writing about the book: first, I want to say it is a beautifully written, often heartbreaking work that should be read slowly with pauses to consider and think about the overwhelming emotional response created by the beautiful construction and words of the book; and second, I remember warmly the evening long ago when Michael Ondaatje gave a reading at Malaspina University- College in Nanaimo, BC,  and then joined a few of us at my home for discussion and refreshments. He made a lasting impression on our teenaged daughter as a few of us sat on the floor and discussed his reading and importantly – legumes! I do not remember why legumes, but our daughter remembers the legume discussion and confirmed my recollection.
