About This Book

Resonant in its social insights and beautifully written, Yasmine Gooneratne creates a richly imagined world of love, political chicanery and family turmoil in the newly independent Sri Lanka of the 1950s and '60s. As a highly political family attempts to balance language with religion, and privilege with equity, two smart, sassy young women pursue their personal freedoms. The Sweet and Simple Kind enchant us with its combination of authenticity, humour and passion, and haunts us with reminders of what we were and what we might have been.
