Our Neighbours and Other Stories sees acid thrown into the face of a lover, the transformation of a relationship during an Air raid and an army deserter exchanging one kind of hell for another. The short stories in Neluka Silva's collection, which includes the award winning Our Neighbours, are populated by ordinary people faced with pivotal, often life-changing moments of conflict and crisis. Whilst many of the stories are located in the world of Sri Lanka's middle class, familiar themes of love, betrayal, rivalry, anxiety and regret are given new meaning as Neluka Silva invites the reader to engage with compelling, sympathetic and frequently disturbing characters as they experience a range of challenging predicaments.
