The scavenging principle at work in the novel runs counter to the theme of erasure, which itself culminates in the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Alternatively, you may choose to explore the scavenging principle as a narrative technique employed by Ondaatje in The English Patient.
