Description

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.
