    I was in Sri Lanka in November 2013 and this book by Ashok Ferrey was bought during the trip There are 24 short stories involving Sri Lankans with settings in Sri Lanka or in other countries Ashok brings places of interests, famous venues and typical lives of Sri Lankans to the readers I felt a connection with Sri Lanka as I read his very interesting stories Some stories have unexpected endings It was unusual and I am amazed at author s imaginations This book cannot be rushed You have to read it slowly to fully appreciate the story deeply or to understand the intentions of the author After the trip to Sri Lanka, this book was the dessert to cap a wonderful trip to a historically and culturally rich country.
