With a New Afterword by the Author Originally published nearly forty years ago and continuously in print since,The Collected Works of Billy the Kidintroduced one of our most beloved writers and has become a classic of our day. Drawing on contemporary accounts, period photographs, dime novels, and his own prodigious fund of empathy and imagination, Michael Ondaatje's visionary novel traces the legendary outlaw's passage across the blasted landscape of 1880 New Mexico and the collective unconscious of his country. Here is a virtuoso synthesis of storytelling, history, and myth by a writer who brings us back to our familiar legends with a renewed sense of wonder.
