A room without books is like a body without a soul – Cicero
Hello there, this is the blog of the Perera Hussein Publishing House, which was established by Sam Perera and Ameena Hussein in December 2003 in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The main aim of the publishing house is to encourage Sri Lankan authors who will inspire, provoke and entertain.
Riding the crest of the new wave of high quality South Asian literature, our authors have gone on to win awards and be nominated for international prizes.
So visit this page frequently, leave comments on what you would like Sri Lankan fiction to grow into, review our books and most of all keep on reading – what, whenever, whom – it really doesn’t matter.
