Highlights:

During the height of the Sri Lankan civil war, Maali Almeida, war photographer, gambler and closet gay, has woken up dead in what seems to be a celestial visa office. His dismembered body is sinking in the Beira Lake in central Colombo and he has no idea who killed him.

At a time when scores are settled by death squads, suicide bombers and hired goons, the list of suspects is depressingly long.

But even in the afterlife, time is running out for Maali. He has ‘seven moons’ to find out who killed him and to try and contact the man and woman he loves most in order to lead them to a hidden cache of photos that will rock Sri Lanka.

Description

Review

Life after death in Sri Lanka: an afterlife noir, with nods to Dante and Buddha and yet unpretentious. Fizzes with energy, imagery and ideas against a broad, surreal vision of the Sri Lankan civil wars. Slyly, angrily comic. — The 2022 Booker Prize

The South Asian epic we have been waiting for for a decade. Riotous, funny and heartbreaking. It stays with you long after you have finished reading it. — Mohammed Hanif

The wild horses of Shehan Karunatilaka’s imagination run fast, wild and true. — Jeet Thayil

Sri Lankan writer Shehan Karunatilaka returns with a crackling whodunit a decade after his debut. — The Indian Express

Karunatilaka’s tone is almost in the vein of his literary hero, Kurt Vonnegut, combining the funny and the dreadful in a bleak, black way. — Open

Impressive . . . a tighter expression of his distinctive prose and an even more glaring mirror of Sri Lanka. — The Hindu

A big, brash beast of a novel, epic in scale and inventiveness. Shifting back and forth in tone from riotous to devastating, it is simultaneously a thrilling murder mystery, a razor-sharp indictment of Sri Lankan politics and society, and most intuitively, a morbidly funny yet perceptive rumination on mortality and what comes after death. –– Scroll
