u BEGGAR’S FEAST
“A rags-to-riches picaresque about the clash of
worlds and the revenge of empires.... The easy
postcolonial comparison might be Rushdie
or Ondaatje, but Sam Kandy, the inventive
and ambitious scrabbler, also has a bit of Saul
Bellow’s Augie March, while his humble begin-nings...remind of that other signifying cipher
upstart, Jay Gatsby....A satirical feast.”—The
Globe and Mail. “[Boyagoda’s narrative voice] is
as lush as the tropical landscape of Ceylon.”—
