The real “English Patient” wasn’t a womanizer…he was gay, letters reveal

Author Michael Ondaatje, penned the extremely moving story of The English Patient, based on the life and love of Count Laszlo de Almásy.

Letters have surfaced, written by Laszlo, to his lover, a young Nazi soldier named Hans Entholt.

Further details can be found here. We can surely imagine another book, based on the letters and the true-to-life love affair of these two men, might be forthcoming in the future.
