This book deals with the most tumultuous years of Sri Lanka’s post-colonial history. It is an extraordinary blend of fiction and history. The story is a penetrative probe into the belief systems of the country, and how they were made to serve as catalysts for the unleashing of violence which shook the country between 1971-2009.
The author with an array of academic distinctions in multiple fields deals with the subject with a display of rare erudition. A master of many languages and a confirmed globe-trotter for whom the world is his home, he approaches the subject without bias or prejudice.
