Reviews

"Rich in the tales of Sri Lanka under colonial British rule as well as coverage of the current civil war, Barker's memoir is an enlightening and captivating read."--Kristine Huntley, Booklist

"Anyone going to Sri Lanka should consider Adele Barker's Not Quite Paradise essential reading. Even travelers headed to other parts of the globe--or those going no farther than their own living room--will find this story of an American woman thoughtfully wending her way through the complexities of another country's culture and history fascinating."--Kristin Ohlson, author of Stalking the Divine and coauthor of Kabul Beauty School "Adele Barker offers this memorable gift: the story of strangers from very different countries becoming cherished and enduring friends. Against the background of a most beautiful country and through the tragedies that have marred its recent history, her love of the land and for its people won a high place in this reader's heart."--Mary Oliver, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet
