Writers at SWF

Recommended here some more events with writers of Indian heritage at Sydney Writers Festival (May 22-May 28):

Anuk Arudpragasam is from Colombo, Sri Lanka and currently lives in New York, where he is completing a doctorate in philosophy at Columbia University. His first novel, The Story of a Brief Marriage, is a meditation on trauma and silence and takes place over the course of a few hours in a displaced person’s camp during the final days of the Sri Lankan Civil War. Described as ‘an act of sustained empathy’ by The New Yorker, it was named one of the Best Ten Novels of 2016 by The Wall Street Journal. Anuk writes in English and Tamil.
