A Passage North by Anuk Arudpragasam shortlisted for The Booker Prize 2021

We are delighted that A Passage North by Anuk Arudpragasam has been shortlisted for The Booker Prize 2021. In his second novel, the Sri Lankan author explores the lasting effects of the trauma and violence of his country’s civil war, and a past love affair. “We felt that he was taking on with great seriousness this question of, how can you grasp the present, while also trying to make sense of the past?” said judge Horatia Harrod.
