Stunning new edition of Romesh Gunesekera's highly acclaimed short story collection, redesigned as part of Granta's publication of the author's backlist.

This vivid and haunting short-story collection flows smoothly together to create a masterful portrait of contemporary Sri Lanka; a country of teeming natural beauty, with a society in turmoil. A married couple, living in London, find their marriage strained by fighting in their far-off homeland. A man mourns his brother's death. A woman regrets the lover she left behind. Between exile and loss, Gunesekera's characters struggle for the elusive and divided place that they call home. Re-printed by Granta in a beautiful new edition.
