Vasantha retired early, bought himself a van with his savings and now works as a driver for hire in Sri Lanka. As he ferries new entrepreneurs, charity workers and families around the country, he reveals with self-deprecating wit and folksy wisdom their uncertain lives after the end of a decades-long war. On his journey from the army camps of the north to the moonlit beaches of the south coast, he begins to wonder if the past can be left behind- especially his own, and his country's-and what the future might hold for a lovelorn soldier out on the ramparts, a fast-moving hotelier in a bombed out town, an eager Jaffna student of Italian, or a desperate librarian of empty shelves? Perceptive, somber, finely tuned, Noontide Toll draws an extraordinary portrait of post-war Sri Lanka grappling with the ghosts of its troubled past
