A Dot You Are

Manjula Wediwardena

A compelling story about a man's journey to self-discovery set in the preternatural landscape of Sri Lanka.

To marry Threesa, the woman he loves, Anthony must first find his father, and learn about his origins. He embarks on an arduous journey in search of answers to his elusive past, and finds himself on the island of Baththalangunduwa.

Antony meets Addin, his aloof father, a prominent figure on the island, and encounters Sinbad, a highly intuitive and outspoken fisherman who works on Addin's boat. Together with his friend Christo, Sinbad assists Antony in becoming a local hero.

With all his experiences in tow, Anthony is faced with an important decision: will he renounce his life in the city for the life of a simple fisherman?

A touching philosophical work about family, love and humanity, A Dot You Are, compels readers to question their own place in the world.

ABOUT MANJULA WEDIWARDENA


Manjula Wediwardena is a Sri Lankan creative writer (novelist, poet), and a journalist who wrote against the inhuman suppression and violation of human rights of the Tamils and Tamil journalists during the ethnic war in Sri Lanka. As a result, he was forced to flee from Sri Lanka and has lived as a political refugee in France since 2009.
In 1997, Manjula published his first poetry book, Niruththara Samadiya (Clueless Heart), with Shane Mackelvie and started his journey as a creative writer. While being an exile, he has published ten poetry collections, four novels and three collections of short stories. Apart from the publications, Manjula has contributed to Sri Lankan literature by writing numerous television serials, film and theatre scripts. Many of those have either won or been nominated for prestigious literary awards and prizes in Sri Lanka.
Being one of the pioneers of a major overseas pressure group called Journalists for Democracy in Sri Lanka (JDS), Manjula works as an active journalist while continuing his amazing literary journey.
