Michael Ondaatje: Divisadero
Listen to/Watch entire show:
Michael Ondaatje's novels come together through a combination of obsession and intuition. He works in the dark, not knowing where he is heading, juxtaposing disparate materials, noticing echoes and recurrences. We explore the mysterious convergences in Divisadero (Knopf) — convergences that link a family ranch in contemporary California with the life and works of a forgotten French poet and novelist. How does Ondaatje come to know what his work is ultimately about?
