When Krishan learns that his grandmother’s housekeeper has died under unexplained circumstances, the young man travels to civil war-torn northern Sri Lanka for the funeral. Anuk Arudpragasam, »One of the most individual minds of their generation« [Financial Times], was shortlisted for the Booker Prize for his moving reflection on the country’s history and the impact of violence on individual lives.
