Set adrift by the recent death of his wife, Theo Samarajeeva abandons his comfortable writer's life in London and returns to Sri Lanka, his war-torn homeland. There he meets Nulani, a talented and enigmatic young artist, and an unorthodox and tenuous love blossoms between this unlikely pair. But when the insurgency explodes, their precarious world is torn apart. Theo is held captive and stripped of everything he once held dear. Nulani is forced into exile. By turns heartbreaking and uplifting, Mosquito is a first novel of remarkable beauty and compelling power.
