The Dark Side of the World

(2012)
A Novella by

 
 
An elderly refugee couple sit patiently on the train waiting to see their long lost son; a young destitute mother is forced to give up her daughter; a middle-aged Tamil woman sits at her kitchen table, alone in her house in England, waiting for her husband, and a boy leaves Sri Lanka in search of a better life. Weaving together a moving tapestry, these stories depict the fate of the immigrant.

From Roma Tearne, bestselling author of The Swimmer and Brixton Beach, come these wonderful stories that speak of the horrors of war, the collective guilt of the survivor, of loss, and of belonging in a place that you don't call home.
