The Sinhala translation by Dileepa Abeysekara of Shehan Karunatilaka’s award-winning Chinaman: The Legend of Pradeep Mathew.

The story’s narrator is retired sports journalist, WG Karunasena, who has done little with his 64 years, other than drink arrack and watch Sri Lankan cricket. When informed by doctors of his liver problems, WG decides to track down the greatest thing he has ever seen, Pradeep Mathew, left-arm spinner for Sri Lanka during the late 80s.

The story is part-tragedy, part-comedy, part-mystery and part-drunken-memoir. The setting is Sri Lanka in 1999, fresh after world cup victory, in the throes of a bloody war that will continue for yet another decade. Most of the action takes place on Colombo’s streets, at cricket matches, in strange houses and in dodgy bars.
