Sam's Story by Elmo Jayawardena
This is the second book that I have read by a Sri Lankan author. It's the story of "Sam" who is a houseboy for a rich family. Sam grew up impoverished and is illiterate.
We see the world as Sam see's it. The war is still going on and his coworkers are Tamil. He has lost two brothers to the war.
From start to finish I enjoyed this book. You can find a better review on Amazon : )
