“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."
“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.”
"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
