Givewaway Monday: The Beach at Galle Road

Every Monday in July, we’re giving away FREE advance copies of our amazing fall lineup.


The Beach at Galle Road

by Joanna Luloff

The lives of Sri Lankan natives and American Peace Corps workers intersect during a time of change and crisis in this accomplished collection of interconnected stories—a debut by an immensely talented young writer.

Get a sneak peek at this exciting debut collection from Joanna Luloff — yours before you can even buy it. Just fill out the form below. Twenty-five names will be chosen at random to receive an advance copy of The Beach at Galle Road, which will be out in October.

Joanna skillfully weaves together the stories of intersecting lives during the Sri Lankan civil war, exploring memory and identity through different points of view, across generations and georgraphies. The Beach at Galle Road pits the destructive power of war against the resilient power of family, individual will and the act of storytelling.

This looks like an amazing read. Thank you for making the pre-release available. I would love to review it for my website and if possible do an author interview in conjunction with the review.
Thanks again!

Having lived through the beginning of this 30+ year civil war,and knowing the area well, I’d be interested also. Excellent diving off the reef there.
