American readers have long devoured stories and books about our Civil War. 

Maybe it seems safe, because it was so long ago. 

But our planet is no stranger to civil conflicts, including the long battle between Tamil and Sinhalese factions in Sri Lanka; it only ended five years ago.

Joanna Luloff spent several years in Sri Lanka as a Peace Corps volunteer; her fictionalized accounts of events and people there is contained in her book The Beach at Galle Road

Joanna Luloff visits our studio to talk about her work.
