The Seasons of Trouble:
Life Amid the Ruins of Sri Lanka's War
An evocative account of the lives of three casualties of the end of Sri Lanka's civil war. The stories of all three - Sarva, taken off the streets by the security forces, Indra, his mother and Mugil, a former child soldier who deserts - demonstrate the appalling toll that ethnic conflict takes on ordinary civilians sucked into the turmoil. The story is also a cautionary tale for anyone attracted to chauvinist rhetoric anywhere. As the author states in her preface, "None of the people in this book are entirely representative of Sri Lanka or the communities they belong to...Their points of view, prejudices and contradictions push and pull at the ethnic stereotypes that the conflict has created." 353 pages.
