An Eye for an Eye

(2001)
A novel by

 
 
In this tale of revenge, Bandula Chandraratna returns to the desert kingdom he portrayed in Mirage, and to the story of Sayeed and his lost love.
Never for a moment has Sayeed doubted the innocence of Latifa - the beautiful village girl he brought to the city as his wife. But he cannot save her.
Bandula Chandraratna evokes the confusion of a spirit in revolt, against itself and against the savage forces that surround it. Each detail resonates with life - the little girl who pictures her mother lost in the desert, the goodness of Sayeed's friends and their guileless attempts to reconcile him to his loss, the father who travels to the city to retrieve the body of his daughter. And through it all runs the distant echo of Latifa's own story, the truth that lies beyond the tragedy.
