Lead Review

  • Book: Chinaman
  • Location: Sri Lanka
  • Author: Shehan Karunatilaka



`this is the only bit of cricket fiction I have read that has serious ambitions and that carries real weight … a mixture of, say, CLR James, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Fernando Pessoa and Sri Lankan arrack … the Sri Lankan cricket team are on their way to this country to play three Tests and fine one-day internationals … I hope, dear reader, that you enjoy it, and that you enjoy Chinaman as well. Both experiences are essential to anyone with a taste for maverick genius’
–Times, Simon Barnes
