A beautiful new limited edition paperback of The English Patient, published as part of the Bloomsbury Modern Classics list

A small cargo plane will come down to land, slipping from the level of the horizon. It tips its wings within desert light and then sound stops, it drifts to earth.The final curtain is closing on the Second World War and in an abandoned Italian villa Hana, a nurse, tends to her sole remaining patient. Rescued from a burning plane, the anonymous Englishman is damaged beyond recognition and haunted by painful memories.

The only clue Hana has to unlocking his past is the one thing he clung on to through the fire - a copy of The Histories by Herodotus, covered with hand-written notes detailing a tragic love affair.

  • The English Patient

    by on

    a slow burning narrative that grips the reader from the start and gradually completes a rather complicated jigsaw of integrated life stories.
    highly recommend

  • Thought-provoking

    by on

    Thoroughly enjoyed this chance to read about four different perspectives of surviving WWII, from the relatively calm setting of a bombed Italian villa at the end of the war. The four central characters of the English patient, his Canadian nurse, the Indian sapper and the spy are slowly given extra depth and richness as they navigate the damaging effects of the war and personal traumas and come to a tenuous understanding of each other.
