One of Canada’s most highly regarded writers, Michael Ondaatje is known .

One of Canada’s most highly regarded writers, Michael Ondaatje is known for work that dissolves the lines between prose and poetry, past and present . Ondaatje’s fame as a novelist skyrocketed after the movie adaptation of his best-selling novel The English Patient (1992). Set in an Italian villa at the end of World War II, the novel foregrounds Ondaatje’s linguistic prowess. As Diane Watson noted in Contemporary Novelists, Ondaatje is concerned always to focus on the human, the private, and the 'real' over the theoretical and the ideological," in his novels and short fiction.

Michael Ondaatje is the first comprehensive and fully up-to-date study of Ondaatje's entire oeuvre. Starting from Ondaatje's beginnings as a poet, this volume offers an intensive account of each of his major publications, including The Collected Works of Billy the Kid, Coming Through Slaughter, In The Skin of a Lion and The English Patient, drawing attention to the various contexts and intertexts that have informed his work. The book contains a broad overview of Ondaatje's career for students and readers coming to his work for the first time. It also offers an original reading of his writing which significantly revises conventional accounts of Ondaatje as a postmodern or postcolonial writer. As the fullest account of Ondaatje's work to date, Spinks's approach draws on a range of postcolonial theory and, as well as being a landmark in Ondaatje scholarship, makes a distinctive contribution to debates about postcolonial literature and the poetics of postmodernism.
