    Congratulations, how incredibly wonderful. So sorry I won’t be able to make the book signings, I’ll be thinking of you.

    I can’t wait to read it….

    Very very best

  2. Anita

    I’m so excited to read the book. I’m going to miss you at AAAS but I’m going to try and come to the one at the Book Cellar if at all possible!

    Congratulations Sugi. I hope to make it to your signing in April. If I dont see you then, I will have to meet up with you later. I want to get your autograph on my copy. 🙂

    Sugi! Congrats! Don’t think you’ll be swinging by this part of the world again soon, but I want to get an autographed version sometime 🙂

    Hi! Yours is the most wonderfully moving book I’ve read in a long time. You have found an admirer for keeps. Anxious already to see what you’ll write next. Hope to see you at Tamarind Gallery reading on the 28th of May. I’m Puerto Rican, and believe me, even with the political ties between us and the U.S., it is as difficult for Americans to find our island on the map as it may have been to find Sri Lanka before the Tsunami as you mention in the novel. See you. Edna

  6. Nalayini & Ravi Brodie

    We Hope and Pray we would make it on May/21st.
    All the best.
    Congratulation Sugi.

    Hi Sugi,
    Well done Sugi, my heartiest congratulations. I just finished your book and it brings back lots of memories. I am sorry that you did not get to read my book Peace With Justice published in 2005 in Toronto. I too have written about Ariyalai and war-time experiences in Jaffna. Please let me have your e mail and address and I can post you a copy.

    I missed meeting you and your Toronto reading as I was in Colombo from April 1-June 7 nth – it is nice to be back here.
    What are you going to write next?

    Read your book today,and was entranced by the style of writing. Will buy your second book. But thought the story was weak,rambling,and I was unsatisfied.

    Hi Sugi,

    Your book is absolutely brilliant, reads more like a non-fiction novel encompassing generations & its a relevant & topical issue.
    You have to make it to India for the launch of this book, we will be releasing the book in September.

    I believe it to be a lucky accident that I encountered this book in a small bookshop in Seattle. Reading Love Marriage was like reading a book for poetry that was all held together by a central theme. It was so beautiful, that each page and story moved me, and painted an image of a country and life that I do not know, yet feel have become a part of me.

    Congratulations on this work of art. I aspire to one day write with the beautiful prose that you presented in this novel.

    Dear Sugi!
    You have done a wonderful work. My daughter borrowed from one of the Toronto public libraries. I took quite some time(I’ a slow reader)to finish reading this book, but I don’t regret for that. I wish you all the best to write more books of this type.
