Romesh Gunesekera by Marzena Pogorzaly


Romesh Gunesekera is internationally acclaimed for his novels and short stories, including the Booker Prize-shortlisted novel, Reef and Noontide Toll, a cycle of linked stories published in 2014, that captured a vital moment in post-war Sri Lanka. His latest novel, Suncatcher (shortlisted for the 2020 Jhalak Prize), returns to an earlier era and a story of divided loyalties and endangered friendship in the turbulent 1960s. It is now available in paperback and as an audiobook. Born in Sri Lanka, he also lived in the Philippines before coming to Britain. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.
