Anuk Arudpragasam

The Story of a Brief Marriage

€ 26.95


`Very seldom in a reading life does a novel alter your sense not only of literature but of the world. This extraordinary debut is of that class.` --Garth Greenwell, author of What Belongs to You In the last months of the Sri Lankan Civil War, Dinesh`s world has contracted to an evacuee camp, where he measures his days by shells that fall like clockwork. Alienated from language, home, and family, he is brought back to life by an unexpected proposal from an old man in the camp: that he marry his daughter, Ganga. In the hours they spend together, Dinesh and Ganga attempt to awaken to one another, to reclaim their humanity. Anuk Arudpragasam`s The Story of a Brief Marriage is a feat of stunning imaginative empathy, a meditation on the bare elements of human existence that give life its pulse and purpose, even in the face of atrocity`-
