He sleeps with an arm thrown across his face to block out the silver threads of dawn,the sugary-sweet film soundtracks rising from the neighbor’s radio,the roaring of that fierce and relentless ocean.His lips move.From the drowned depths of his sleep,it is my sister’s name,the single syllable of it that emerges over and over.A whispered keening of the sound I bestowed upon her lifetimes ago.I stay perfectly still,perfectly quiet,my hands folded on his fluttering heart.From here,this close to him,I can still her breathing on the other side of him.

‘Lyrical, heartfelt and awash with imagery: Island of a Thousand Mirrors expresses a deep love of the country and a lingering sadness at what Sri Lanka has done to itself’ – Shehan Karunatilaka, author of Chinaman

‘Nayomi Munaweera pulls you into this book’s big-hearted embrace with fierce, poetic language and striking imagery. The three women at the core of the ambitious, globe-spanning story show us, heart-breakingly, that we are linked by more than nation, more than race, more, even than blood. A dark, beautiful transporting debut’ – V. V. Ganeshananthan, author of Love Marriage

‘In Island of a Thousand Mirrors, Nayomi Munaweera writes with ferocity, fire and poetry of the incomprehensible madness of civil war and its effects upon those caught within it, whether in the villages and cities of Sri Lanka, or half a world away. A masterful, incendiary debut’ – Janet Fitch, author of White Oleander

The controversial professor of Mathematics, scholar and lawyer from Vavuniya – C. Suntharalingam, was a member of independent Ceylon’s first cabinet of Ministers alongside D.S.  Senanayake, S.W.R.D Bandaranaike, J.R Jayawardene, J.L Kothalawala, Sir Oliver Goonetilleke, T.B Jayah, Dudley Senanayake etc. Resigning from his Ministerial post in an era of rising communal tension, he composed open letters to his grandchildren, venting his disenchantment, and  decrying the direction that  Ceylon’s newly gained independence was talking under the stewardship of her elected officials. These letters, Serialized in newspapers over fifty years ago, present an insight into a version of events that contributed to our turbulent, recent history.
