THE SALINA JOURNAL APPLAUSE WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30, 1997 3 'English Patient 7 prequel worth reading By J.D.F. Janes The Financial Times In all the commotion about the Oscar-winning film "The English Patient," it is curious that none of the critics has reminded us that Michael Ondaalje's novel is a sort of sequel to another brilliant book which he published in 1987 — "In The Skin of a Lion" (paperback, Vintage Books, $12). I assume that, just as many of the people who enjoyed the film have not (yet) read the book, many of those who had read the Booker Prize winning "The English Patient" have not gone back to Ondaalje's earlier work. That's a pity, not least because several of the characters in "The English Patient" first appear Shop the \: \W> I «/' DON LOADER 1 INTERIORS Area Rims (lifts I' in "In The Skin of a Lion." The nurse Hana, for instance, is a child in the early book, befriended by the great friend of her step-father Patrick, the professional burglar Caravaggio. To know this makes better sense of the plot of the film: Caravaggio, the Allied spy who has been tortured by the Germans, comes to the Tuscan villa not because he is seeking the Hungarian Count Almasy, but because he has heard that Hana is there and in trouble.

"The English Patient" is "about" four people of equal significance, whose stories interlock and who are all in some sense "patients" in retreat from the war. The film extracted Hana and the mysterious dying pilot (with his memories of his pre-war romance in North Africa). Caravaggio became a supporting part,; the Sikh sapper Kip was near written out. This has made for a successful middle-brow film but it denies Ondaalje's prime purpose, which is summed up in the quota- tion from John Berger with which he prefaced "In the Skin of a Lion": "Never will a single story be told as though it was the only one." Most, of the characters appeal- again in "The English Patient," where the counterpoint of the characters echoes Patrick's discovery one day in Toronto: "He saw himself gazing at so many stories ... His own life was no longer a single story but part of a mural, which was a falling together of accomplices. Patrick saw a wondrous night web ..." Have You Heard?
