Description This Divided Island de Sammanth Subramanian:

Samanth Subramanian has written about politics, culture, and history for the" New York Times "and the "New Yorker"." "Now, Subramanian takes on a complex topic that touched millions of lives in "This Divided Island." In the summer of 2009, the leader of the dreaded Tamil Tiger guerrillas was killed, bringing to an end the civil war in Sri Lanka. For nearly thirty years, the war's fingers had reached everywhere, leaving few places, and fewer people, untouched. What happens to the texture of life in a country that endures such bitter conflict? What happens to the country's soul? Subramanian gives us an extraordinary account of the Sri Lankan war and the lives it changed. Taking us to the ghosts of summers past, he tells the story of Sri Lanka today. Through travels and conversations, he examines how people reconcile themselves to violence, how the powerful become cruel, and how victory can be put to the task of reshaping memory and burying histories. SAMANTH SUBRAMANIAN is a New Delhi-based writer and journalist. He has written stories for the "New Yorker," "Granta," "The New York Times," and the "Wall Street Journal," and book reviews and cultural criticism for the New Republic, the Guardian and Bookforum.
