The Story combines Ondaatjes sensual writing with watercolor illustrations by celebrated painter David Bolduc, making a unique item. Left-hand pages contain Bolducs art while right-hand pages contain Ondaatjes poem — both typeset and in the authors own handwriting. This elegant housing is a fitting accompaniment to Ondaatjes elegaic poem, which follows his larger themes — love, memory, family, exile — even as it unfolds into our dismantled childhoods, and offers readers the opportunity to extend its narrative into their own lives.
