Heaven's Edge Romesh Gunesekera 206pp, Bloomsbury, £1. 9. Despoiled paradises and desecrated Edens have always been at the heart of Romesh Gunesekera's subtle and often elegiac fiction. Heaven's Edge, his most powerful and compelling novel to date, recreates the mythic fall in the Edenic garden. It shockingly reimagines his birthplace, Sri Lanka, as an unnamed tropical Asian island in the near future: familiar yet disturbing, magical and pervasively violent, a post-nuclear dystopia peopled by traumatised orphans and rebel eco-warriors.
Romesh Gunesekera's dazzling first novel, Reef, was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and The Guardian First Fiction Award. Now he delivers a spellbinding modern odyssey that The Daily Telegraph praises as "powerful-dense, cadenced, the images perfectly observed.
His first novel Reef was shortlisted for both the Booker Prize and the Guardian Fiction Prize in 1994.
