What a British International Civil Servant with ten years in Sri Lanka says about the book:

The imaginary discourses in Ananda Guruge's "Voices from ancient Sri Lanka" come full-circle in the "Serendipity of Andrew George" in which the country, its peoples and their cultures are explored at the present time. It is unique in its comprehensive approach to the reality of modern Sri Lanka.

Many visiting Sri Lanka will stay in Colombo, Kandy and Galle and think they have seen and come to know the country. "Serendipity of Andrew George" with its detailed account of the geography, history, art and architecture, religions, and societies in all their diversity will show them just what they have missed. A more comprehensive account of any country and of its society would be hard to find.   

It is a remarkable mix of biography and extensive travel throughout Sri Lanka. It can be read as a novel and also as a travel guide. Written in the form of a biography of a third generation American immigrant returning to the Island in search of his hitherto unknown roots, it leads one to fascinating experiences in an ancient nation with its exotic customs, taboos and social norms. A compulsive read for visitors and even those reading at home over breakfast.

I only wish I had it during my ten years in Sri Lanka as it would have enabled me to add to my enjoyment of a wonderful island.
