FROM THIS EPISODE

book.jpgMaster of concealment Michael Ondaatje departs from form in The Cat's Table (Vintage International), a novel of constant discovery that follows the journey of an eleven-year-old boy aboard a ship bound from Sri Lanka to England. As the story is recalled from the vantage of adulthood, the narrator's 21-day trip reveals itself as a passage through adolescence -- an exhilarating adventure, but also one that heralds the end of childhood. Ondaatje discusses his turn from concealment to revelation and reflects on the magic of youth.
