Author- Annesley Perera
Few days ago Annesley posted from Australia, his virtual autobiography and having thoroughly enjoyed reading it, I proposed him to offer it to your web site to be published if possible as a serial. It is a novel as good as ‘මඩොල්දූව’ of Mr Martin Wickramasinghe.
That letter I copied to yourself and the rest of our inner team (Praxy and Deepthie)
Though it is an autobiography I found Annesley to be a good writer and a fab story teller.
He mentioned replying to my letter of his intention to offer our batch mates (interested) copies of the book free of charge when meet at RU.in October.
His intention of writing this book was for his kith and kin to tell his own story as well as a momento of the good old days spent at Medical school and beyond.
As expected the book begins where his life began at number 276, Galle Road, Kalutara.
Very kindly he wrote to me today of his feeling that batch mates too being like close family and he would gladly release few copies to those who would want,
I made a proposal to serialise the book to the batch web, as it would in my opinion be avidly read by those who are interested.
I can vouch, having read it is not only extremely readable but to my knowledge this is the first book to chronicle five years of our jolly life in the medical school, so vividly.
Of course span of the book tited, 276, Galle Road, encompasses his entire life from birth virtually to present.
I am copying this to him too and hope have not troubled him too much by my request to serialise his our life story through his extremely eloquent writing.
