The Story of a Brief Marriage by Anuk Arudpragasam

In this beautiful, brazen debut novel, Arudpragasam intimately explores the human condition through a day in the life of Dinesh, a young refugee of the Sri Lankan Civil War. Asked to marry an older man’s only daughter to provide an illusion of protection from the armies and the shellings, Dinesh accepts and in so doing must reacquaint himself with the act of living, instead of merely surviving. It is bone-deep introspective and worth the devastating read.  —Melinda
