Description

Zillij is a collection of short stories adressing and revolving around the question of identity, within an essentially Sri Lankan context.

Zillij is the captivating Islamic traditional art of creating intricate mosaic design using hand-cut tiles.

While most of this volume reflects aspects of Sri Lanka’s ethnic and socio-economic struggles, these stories are not merely ‘about’ Sri Lanka.

Winner of the State Literary Award for Best Short Stories
