Sri Lanka’s first collection of 17 scorching stories and poems that evoke a world of heady sensuality and offer a veritable smorgasboard of spicy fantasies. These irresistibly hot stories deliver a delicious array of situations where it seems like anything can happen – and often does. From the fast-paced opening story, The Proposal, where the protagonist is a label-bashing metrosexual to the nostalgic Bus Stop where the sweetness of the romance remains with you long after you have turned
the last page. The Lava Lamp, Me and Ms J and Room 1716 deliver lesbian desire and a sense of the forbidden, a theme uncommon in Sri Lankan literature. And then there is the thrill of encountering sex in exactly the place you don’t expect to find it in Undercover. A book with lots of naughtiness, and a fresh focus on Sri Lankan fiction that challenges stereotypes of Sri Lankan sexuality, Blue is a collection to break the hum
and drone of everyday life. If you only ever read one book like this in your lifetime – make it this one.
