Colpetty People by Ashok Ferry Paperback Fiction(?) 207 pages
The Sri Lankan author takes a tongue in cheek poke at Sri Lankan life from both sides of the fence. As servants and as wealthy Sri Lankan's who live overseas. It was very interesting to get a behind the scenes look, from a Sri Lankan's view about the role of being a servant as well as someone who has them.
The book helped us put some things into perspective. I guess you really would have to live here to enjoy the book : )
Here is a much better review of this book: http://ratnam.wordpress.com/2009/10/20/kollupitiya-days/
