Romaneskni prvenec britanske avtorice malezijskih korenin Minoli Salgado nas popelje na Šrilanko, otok, ki za idilično podobo palm, turkiznega morja in prostranih riževih polj skriva zgodovino političnih nasprotij, krvavih obračunov in na stotine uničenih družin.

‘A Little Dust on the Eyes’ is an extraordinary novel. The blurb describes it as ‘haunting and richly textured’ and so it is. The writing is very visual – images have stayed with me, like the one from the first page where one of the protagonists of the novel, Savi, watches a friend walk away with her child, ‘the pale face of the child, slumped over Hannah’s shoulder, and the small star of her hand as she waved goodbye.’ It is haunting too in the losses it describes. Savi has lost both parents an ...more

This was a captivating reading experience from start to finish. As a fan of Michael Ondaatje's work, I found A Little Dust on the Eyes an intriguing counterpoint to Anil's Ghost.

This is a beautifully realised exploration of departure, dislocation and return. Set during the Sri Lankan civil war, Minoli Salgado has managed to weave a very personal tale of childhood and memory, set against a backdrop of violence and distrust. Her writing is restrained and poetic, with each perfectly crafted sentence building towards a powerful conclusion. A highly recommended debut.
