A UNIQUE STORY OF INTERSECTIONS: Since its initial release, very few YA coming-of-age books feature a character like Amrith who is Sri Lankan, Canadian, queer.
AWARD-WINNING NOVEL: Swimming in the Monsoon Sea is the winner of the Lambda Literary Award and a Governor General’s Literary Award finalist.
CROSSOVER APPEAL: Shyam Selvadurai is an author beloved across age groups and Swimming in the Monsoon Sea is sure to appeal to both teens and adults alike.
REISSUING IN PAPERBACK WITH A NEW COVER!
"As lush and languid as its Sri Lanka setting…What captures readers is the way the story rolls in waves, mimicking how Amrith looks at himself, then looks away. The luxuriant language with details of architecture and verdant gardens doesn’t call attention to itself, but refreshes like a breeze. Selvadurai, who wrote so gracefully for adults…now does the same for teens."
