The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje
With unsettling beauty and intelligence, this Golden Man Booker Prize–winning novel traces the intersection of four damaged lives in an abandoned Italian villa at the end of World War II.
     The nurse Hana, exhausted by death, obsessively tends to her last surviving patient. Caravaggio, the thief, tries to reimagine who he is, now that his hands are hopelessly 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, whose memories of suffering, rescue, and betrayal illuminate this book like flashes of heat lightning. -- Amazon
     The 1996 movie won the Best Picture Academy Award and stars Ralph Fiennes and Juliette Binoche.
