The Green Stick: A Memoir


Member Price

This gracefully told memoir, set in early twentieth-century colonial Ceylon, depicts the journey of a youth imbued with the experiences and wise guidance that form and shape a man's awareness, and open his eyes to the complexity and wonder of life. Brought up by his grandfather in a Kandyan Sinhalese household, and given the freedom to explore, he discovers his heritage and direction in the wider world.
