The time is our own time. The place is Sri Lanka, the island nation formerly known as Ceylon, off the southern tip of India, a country steeped in centuries of cultural achievement and tradition--and forced into the late twentieth century by the ravages of civil war and the consequences of a country divided against itself. Into this maelstrom steps a young woman, Anil Tessera, born in Sri Lanka, educated in England and America, a forensic anthropologist sent by an international human rights group to work with local officials to discover the source of the organized campaigns of murder engulfing the island.… (més)

When I went to read this book I found not only that I had read it several years before, but that many of the ideas I had about Sri Lanka came from that reading, though I barely remembered the story. Anyway, I finished it again. I enjoyed the book, though I found the ending somewhat less satisfying than Divisadero. ( )

Complex, powerful. Follows Anil Tissera as she returns to Sri Lanka as a representative of a human rights group to investigate political murders known to have occurred in the civil war.

The story focuses on a single skeleton -- I'm not sure how much this is for the literary flexibility, but I found it an irritant.

The story is multilayered, following a range of characters -- and they are characters, because the sparse writing keeps them at a distance from this reader.

worth reading, not sure I'll reread. ( )

The book really took me with it on a journey. I'm glad I read it slowly and without the distraction of any other books. The subject is war and very painful but painted through the detail of characters that go straight to the heart which is how it is bearable to read, yet unbearable at the same time - how do people survive in a war torn country? - well some do and some don't but the struggle to end any war must continue with all of us.

Very moving. Beautifully drawn characters. ( )

Not for the first time, one observes how much more meaningful is description of horror in the hands of the fiction writer than in those of the statistician. From this point of view, the novel has won. I feel impelled to read about the history of Sri Lanka, about which I am completely ignorant.

But....

In search of a job I came to Bogala
I went down the pits seventy-two fathoms deep 
Invisible as a fly, not seen from the pit head 

Only when I return to the surface 
Is my life safe . . . 

Blessed be the scaffolding deep down in the shaft 
Blessed be the life wheel on the mine's pit head 
Blessed be the chain attached to the life wheel . . . 

                                -- Miner's folk song, Sri Lanka

"The bodies turn up weekly now. The height of the terror was 'eighty-eight and 'eighty-nine, but of course it was going on long before that. Every side was killing and hiding the evidence. Every side. This is an unofficial war, no one wants to alienate the foreign powers. So it's secret gangs and squads. Not like Central America. The government was not the only one doing the killing. You had, and still have, three camps of enemies--one in the north, two in the south--using weapons, propaganda, fear, sophisticated posters, censorship. Importing state-of-the-art weapons from the West, or manufacturing homemade weapons. A couple of years ago people just started disappearing. Or bodies kept being found burned beyond recognition. There's no hope for affixing blame. And no one can tell who the victims are."
"There are so many bodies in the ground now, that's what you said...murdered, anonymous. I mean, people don't even know if they are two hundred years old or two weeks old, they've all been through fire. Some people let their ghosts die, some don't. Sarath, we can do something..."
"I wanted to find one law to cover all of living.  I found fear. . . ."
