Sinopsis: A peek into the social, political, religious, and cultural evolutions of modern Sri Lanka (Ceylon), this fictional autobiography spans a century of upheavals, culminating in the country's independence from the British in 1948. A British reviewer says, "The curtain is drawn on astounding intricacies of Ceylonese social life to which only Guruge with his extensive national and international experience could be privy." An American reader calls the novel "a magnum opus, a masterpiece from any angle. Elegant style, eloquent language, relentless tempo, exciting and almost galloping, never boring, most educational--A great intellectual and emotional experience."
