Sri Lanka. Paradise at the union of the Indian Ocean, the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal. Colombo. A dynamic and charming post colonial capitol.
Naline. Twelve years old. Father just died. Mother struggling. Naline worshipped the adventurous Tuc Tuc drivers boldly weaving their colorful three wheeled wonders through the battling traffic of the city. If only he could somehow buy a Tuc Tuc. Life would be bearable for him and his mother.
Charming, funny and genuine. But just under the surface lies the dark side. Navine manages both with the endearing courage, wit and enterprise that is Sri Lanka.
The Tuc Tuc excerpt will be available soon.
