Description

SHORTLISTED FOR THE BOOKER PRIZE 2021

It begins with a message: a telephone call informing Krishan that his grandmother’s former caregiver has died. As Krishan makes the long journey by train from the Sri Lankan capital into the war-torn Northern Province for the funeral, so he travels into the soul of a country devastated by civil war.

Written with precision and grace, A Passage North is a luminous meditation on time and consciousness, race and national identity, and a poignant exploration of the unattainable distances between who we are and what we seek.
