I was recently reviewed in The Economist’s 1843 magazine, about ideas and culture. It’s a small segment, but every word was reassuring.

Here is the text (yes, I copy typed it, it’s short):
Out of the Shadows
In the eight years since Sri Lanka’s civil war, plenty of books have tried to tackle the conflict, but Shankari Chandran’s debut, Song of the Sun God, is being hailed as exceptional. Chandran is from the Tamil ethnic minority, and her tale of the discrimination and violence that affects three generations of a Tamil family is so sensitively written that even Sinhalese readers are praising its depiction of the war that also shaped their own families. Barely two months after its release, a second print run has been ordered and an Indian edition is coming soon.
