Monkfish Moon

By Romesh Gunesekera

Published Aug 2011

From the author of Reef come the nine haunting stories of Monkfish Moon. Written with startling grace, together they create a compelling picture of Sri Lanka, a country of teeming natural beauty and a society in turmoil.

The most startling aspect of this evocative book is how distinct one tale proves from another. These sad, spare stories illustrate the shocking fragility of the whole modern world.
