A captivating memoir of the year and a half Adele Barker spent living and teaching in Sri Lanka, rich in cultural, political, and historical detail. Combining personal narrative, reportage, and travelogue, this book provides an in-depth look at the “resplendent isle” that hangs like a tear drop from the southern tip of India. Devastated by a thirty-year war between the government and the famous Tamil Tigers, and the 2004 tsunami, the Sri Lanka captured by Not Quite Paradise is a beautiful and deeply troubled place.
