Hi! Hope you've had a good summer, or September, despite all that's going on! Just wanted to let you know that I have a new book out.

Noontide Toll, is now available worldwide. Published in the US by the New Press, in South Asia by Penguin India and in the UK (and internationally) by Granta Books. Also available as an e-book from all three.

For a video trailer check out my brand new website just launched: www.romeshg.com, or my Youtube channel.

For reviews, scroll down.

If you are in London, you might like to come along to the RSL evening on New Sri Lankan Writing on 22 October where I'll be talking to V V Ganeshananthan and Razia Iqbal. RSL

Otherwise we might meet if you happen to be at any of the following: the Goa Festival early October, Sharjah in November or Mumbai Literary Carnival in December.

Thanks for reading this!

Romesh
