Description: He is a highly successful financier, controversial, even enigmatic. He has an obsessive curiosity to challenge the unknown, to know the impossible. Most of all, he has an unwavering passion to reach out and understand. This is the Christopher Ondaatje of The Man-Eater of Punanai. It is a story of painful confrontation, of a son returning to his Sri Lankan birthplace, driven to meet with the ghost of a charismatic but tyrannical father. It is also Ondaatje's personal confrontation with a legend, as he revisits the tiny village of Punanai, where a man-eating leopard once devoured more than twenty people in a reign of blood thirsty terror.

More than 100 full-color photographs capture all of the exotic drama of Sri Lanka -- its rich history and its tragic civil war.

The Man-Eater of Punanai is a remarkable book, the story of a maws journey through a kaleidoscope of sunshine and shadows, past and present. As John Fraser, editor of Saturday Night, succinctly says: "This book will surprise everyone, from Bay Street through to the Canadian literary community".
