I am happy to announce that the much-requested English version of my first book of childhood memoirs will be available at Vijitha Yapa Bookshops very soon. Titled Our Childhood In Ceylon:1950, this book will undoubtedly act as a bridge with the past between Sri Lankan grandparents and their expatriate grandchildren who are not Sinhala literate.
I am sure it will be a most welcome Avurudhu gift for both the young and the young-at-heart. Older readers will no doubt be able to take a delightful trip down memory lane via this book!
The book contains the same contents as the Sinhala version, except for the 2 pages of word puzzles which were omitted as they are irrelevant in English. The book was translated by my daughter Deepthi Horagoda who did the illustrations and page designs for the original book as well.
If you would like to see previews of the book, please use the contact form below and send me a message. You can also use the form to receive details on how to pre-order the book from Vijitha Yapa Publications.
If you would like to gift a copy of the book to a loved one either here or abroad, you will be able to purchase from the Vijitha Yapa on-line book store and have it delivered.
I will be posting a link to the on-line store listing when the books are out on sale. If you would like to receive an
e-mail alert, please use the contact form and let me know. Your e-mail address will not be used or shared for any other purposes.
