In the late 1970s, Michael Ondaatje, author of The English patient, returned to his native island of Sri Lanka. Recording his journey through the drug-like heat and intoxicating fragrances of that "pendant off the ear of India," Ondaatje simultaneously retraces the baroque mythology of his Dutch-Ceylonese family. Lyrical and witty, tragic and deliriously romantic, Running in the family is an inspired marriage of travel narrative and family memoir by one of our most eloquent and poetic writers.… (més)

This was an easy, mostly pleasant look into Ondaatje's past and his family's past. It's a nice lyrical book, and I enjoyed it, though it's not something I'll remember much of beyond the fact of having read it. ( )

Well, I like reading Michael Ondaatje, I like his style and his flow. I found this quite mesmerising.

In some ways it reminded me of Empire Of The Sun by J.G. Ballard in that it speaks of a world that is not only long gone but also about as far removed from most peoples' experience as you can get. It's a window into another person's life which is where it is different from his novels, this is about his childhood and how that world was in that unquestioning way that children have when they have nothin to compare it to.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was hooked from the start - Just could not put it down and cursed when I had to .... I loved the writing and the descriptions of the period and places, a time that no longer exists but full of fascinating detail that made you feel as though you were sitting there watching it all happen in front of you. The author is quite a story-teller. There were crazy, colourful and interesting characters in his family. I was in stitches at some of the antics that his father got up to and at the same time could not believe how he could have done some of the things he did!!! I also loved the photos that were included in the book. Looking forward to reading more from this author. ( )

Ondaatje conduce il lettore nella Ceylon degli anni Venti sulle tracce dei ricordi dell'eccentrica nonna Lalla, di qualche vecchia fotografia e di un carnet di ballo ingiallito dal tempo. E ci si ritrova così in un'epoca spensierata e gioiosa, tra personaggi usciti dalle pagine di Francis Scott Fitzgerald e paesaggi che ricordano i romanzi di Kipling, in mondo lussureggiante di odori e sapori, emozioni e passioni, teatro di sbronze colossali e amori travolgenti.
