Colpetty People, the author’s first collection of short stories, brings together a motley crew of characters – Sri Lankans at home and abroad – at various stages of their journey towards emotional fulfillment. The author inhabits the voices of these characters with an uncanny accuracy and the wicked black humour of his take-no-prisoners style of Sri Lankan English. But above all, with a compassion that states unequivocally: laugh with me, I’m as much a part of this as you.
