Mary Ellen von der Heyden Reading

Movement: A Novel in Progress

V.V. Ganeshananthan read from her novel in progress, Movement, which draws on a decade of research on the Sri Lankan civil war, as well as her experience as a member of the Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora. The story tracks its protagonist, Sashi, from her time as a young medic in northern Sri Lanka, in the late 1980s, to her career as an emergency room doctor in New York City, in 2009. As the war hurtles to a brutal conclusion that year, the lessons of Sashi’s history move her to a questionable act of political theater.
