Welcome to In Memory, the English Patient fanlisting
Written by Michael Ondaatje, The English Patient is a memorable and moving book. Adapted into an Oscar-winning film by director Anthony Minghella, it is one of the best movies I've ever seen.
The story is set in Europe and Africa during the second World War. The plot concerns a badly burned man, the "English Patient" of the title, who is being cared for by a nurse in an abandoned Italian villa. The story of his tragic history is unravelled through flashbacks, even as a figure from his past arrives to haunt him.
