W. Morrow and Co.,
Pub. Date:
This haunting novel about a boy growing up within an extended upper-middle-class family in Sri Lanka employs gentle humor and an uncommon compassion and insight into human nature. Arjie's understanding of the world around him--and his own gay identity--is placed against the backdrop of growing racial tension and civil unrest. Selvadurai has a genius for touching a nerve with a feather-like touch.--Literary Review (England).
