The Collected Works of Billy the Kid
The Collected Works of Billy the Kid
A Novel


Ondaatje's fiercely poetic style gives potency to the violence and beauty surrounding Billy the Kid, and the genre of the Western in general. This book casts new light on an already mythic American era, creating a textual collage that takes us through the damaged mind and life of an indispensable anti-hero. —Recommended by Luke, City Lights Books

From the Booker Prize-winning author of The English Patient comes a visionary novel, a virtuoso synthesis of storytelling, history, and myth, about William Bonney, a.k.a. "Billy the Kid, " a bloodthirsty ogre and outlaw saint.

"Ondaatje's language is clean and energetic, with the pop of bullets." —Annie Dillard.
