Imagine letting your eleven year old son board a ship in Colombo bound for England.  This is the stage Ondaatje set’s for three young adolescent boys traveling alone in the 1950’s. I still feel the sheer sense of joy the boys experience finding each other at the Cat’s Table and begin their adolescent romp exploring the ship.  In exquisite prose Ondaatje weaves this well told story of their adventures on board ship and after.
