Ashok Ferrey

“Ashok Ferrey is Sri Lanka’s biggest-selling author in English. His work
takes a satirical look at the complex and often inscrutable lives of Sri
Lankans. After a degree in Pure Mathematics from Oxford University Ashok
became a builder in London. Returning to Colombo he continued to design and
build houses, as well as guest-lecturing at the Colombo School of
Architecture. Of Ashok’s five books, four have been shortlisted for the
Gratiaen Prize, and the fifth for Sri Lanka’s State Literary Award. His most
recent is The Ceaseless Chatter of Demons (Penguin India). By day Ashok is a
personal trainer.”
