The Story

by Michael Ondaatje and David Bolduc

Hardback Publication Date: 13/04/2006

 
Michael Ondaatje's poems have been celebrated by readers and writers alike for containing some of the most memorable and moving verse written in the past half-century. The Story combines Ondaatje's sensual writing with watercolor illustrations by celebrated painter David Bolduc, making a unique item. Left-hand pages contain Bolduc's art while right-hand pages contain Ondaatje's poem both typeset and in the author's own handwriting. This elegant housing is a fitting accompaniment to Ondaatje's elegaic poem, which follows his larger themes love, memory, family, exile even as it unfolds into "our dismantled childhoods," and offers readers the opportunity to extend its narrative into their own lives.
