Our Book of the Week is The Seven Moons of Maali Almeida by Shehan Karunatilaka, the winner of the 2022 Booker Prize. The judges said, "The Seven Moons of Maali Almeida takes readers on a journey at once horrific and humorous — beyond life and beyond death, to the world’s dark heart. There, astonishingly and encouragingly, we find tenderness, laughter, loyalty and love." The novel addresses the trauma of the civil war in Sri Lanka, but is funny, audacious, and full of verve and compassion. Now back in stock!
