REEF. By Romesh Gunesekera

A top notch writer; so many fine descriptions in this work eg ‘we drove…whistling over a ribbon of tarmac…framing the landscape into a kaleidoscope of bluish jewels’ ‘adventurers…each with their flotilla of disturbed hope and manic wanderlust’. ‘the shallow water seethed with creatures…whirling tails…sea snakes, sea slugs, tentacles sprouting and grasping…a jungle of writhing shapes’ ‘the debris of one mind floats to another. The same little polyp grows the idea in another head’. A distinguished wordsmith,
Leke Giwa
