The Sandglass

Penguin UK

Set in London, The Sandglass tells the story of two feuding families whose lives are interlinked by the changing fortunes of postcolonial Sri Lanka. After his mother’s death, Prins Ducal is driven to re-examine his family’s history. In doing so, he discovers questionable circumstances surrounding another death in his family—his father’s—and sets about unravelling the secrets shrouding it. In this beautifully constructed novel, Romesh Gunesekera expertly weaves together the fabric of 1990s London and post-war Sri Lanka, moving seamlessly between past and present.
