Since the epic the Ramayana, Sri Lanka has given the world a wealth of stories and literature.

Three of the country's best contemporary writers look at Sri Lankan writing at home and abroad. Romesh Gunesekera introduces his new historical romance set in Mauritius. Roshi Fernando's debut collection of short stories gives identity to immigrants carving out new lives in a sometimes hostile Britain. Winner of the prestigious DSC Prize for South Asian Literature, Chinaman is the great Sri Lankan cricket novel, by Shehan Karunitilaka.
