by Michael Ondaatje

The Moth, the Darter, a largely absent mother and a father working abroad: these are the characters that surround the teenage Rachel and Nathaniel in 1945; people who crossed legal and moral boundaries during the war but now find them closed. Nathaniel enters the Intelligence Service, largely to solve the mysteries of his youth and it is his memories and discoveries which are at the heart of this intriguing novel. After seven years Michael Ondaatje is back at his very best.
