In the Skin of a Lion Audio (Read by Willem Dafoe)
A haunting tale of passion, privilege and biting physical labour, of men and women moved by compassion and driven by the power of dreams — sometimes even to murder.
Acclaimed stage and film actor Willem Dafoe played Caravaggio in Ondaatje's The English Patient.
Michael Ondaatje is the author of several novels, as well as a memoir, a nonfiction book on film, and several books of poetry. His novel The English Patient won the Booker Prize; Anil’s Ghost won the Irish Times International Fiction Prize, the Giller Prize, and the Prix Médicis. Born in Sri Lanka, Michael Ondaatje now lives in Toronto.
