Michael Ondaatje's The English Patient ends with a letter from Hana to her stepmother. In it she mentions my hometown.
"I am sick of Europe, Clara. I want to come home. To your small cabin and pink rock in Georgian Bay. I will take a bus up to Parry Sound and from the mainland send a message over the shortwave radio out towards The Pancakes. And wait for you, wait to see the silhouette of you in a canoe coming to rescue me from this place we all entered, betraying you."
