Divisadero is a novel by Michael Ondaatje, first published on April 17, 2007 by McClelland and Stewart. The novel centres on a single father and his children: Anna, his natural daughter; Claire, who was adopted as a baby when Anna was born; and Cooper (Coop), who was taken in "to stay and work on the farm" at the age of four when orphaned. The family lives on a farm in Northern California where Anna and Claire are treated almost as twins, while Cooper is treated more as "a hired hand".

There was a book, not much more than a pamphlet with a white spine, I found high on a shelf in the mudroom of the farm. Interviews with Californios: Women from Early Times to the Present. Lydia Mendez was our mother.

Divisadero by Michael Ondaatje 288pp, Bloomsbury, £1. 9. In his poem "Buried", Michael Ondaatje described an enormous, buried stone Buddha; ancient tree roots creep down, form across the entombed face and, when the statue is finally excavated and lovingly removed, the mass of living tree roots are a perfect cast which retain and echo the serene Buddha's absent visage. Ondaatje's novels are always a worldly, calm but labyrinthine seeking of correspondences; they use the scaffolding of conventional narrative and then kick all support away to discover what can stand alone and what is manifested in new form.

Divisadero takes us from the city of San Francisco to the raucous backrooms of Nevada’s casinos and eventually to the landscape of south-central France. It is Michael Ondaatje’s most intimate and beautiful novel to date. Отзывы - Написать отзыв. It is here, outside a small rural village, that Anna becomes immersed in the life and the world of a writer from an earlier time-Lucien Segura. His compelling story, which has its beginnings at the turn of the century, circles around the raw truth of Anna’s own life, the one she’s left behind but can never truly leave.
