Praise

“What is wonderful is the way Abeysekara can make a whole era hang on a single strand of memory.”
—Michael Ondaatje, Booker Prize winning author of The English Patient

"These multilayered stories, worth repeat reading, make a welcome introduction to Abeysekara and his homeland."
Publishers Weekly

“Impressions of youth—painful lessons learned, emotions intensely experienced and adulthood broached—are reconsidered from the perspective of maturity in these long, sensuously detailed fictions.… A sophisticated jigsaw of a book, sensitively…mixing memory and history with regret and rites of passage.”
Kirkus Reviews

"Bringing Tony Home is a collection of short stories from Tissa Abeysekara, who provokes the strange coincidences of life…highly recommended reading for fans of short fiction."
The Midwest Book Review
