Praise For The Water Diviner and Other Stories (Iowa Short Fiction Award)

“Full of richly drawn characters and empathetic inquiry. . . The Water Diviner and Other Stories investigates many aspects of Sri Lankan culture, including the long-term effects of colonialism, ethnic and religious differences, caste and class systems, colorism, racism, immigration, and more. A deep humanity drives each story, with the quest for answers always undertaken by inhabiting another's skin.”—Foreword starred review
