The Monday Morning Book Group will meet to discuss The English Patient by Michael Oondatjee. A nurse, Hanna, exhausted by death at t he end of World War II, obsessively tends to her last surviving patient. Caravaggio, the thief, tries to reimagine who he is, now his hands are hoplessly maimed. The Indian sapper, Kip, searches for hidden bombs in a landscape where nothing is safe but himself. And at the center of his labyrinth lies the English patient, nameless and hideously burned, a man who is both a riddle and a provocation to his companions.
