The Big Girl

The Big Girl & Other Stories is a retro-collection of stories by the talented posthumous author Alagu Subramaniam. They recount scenes of life in Jaffna more than 50 years ago. The book which had disappeared from circulation has now been updated and reprinted in its entirety.
These stories evocatively capture the ethos of an era now past and will leave you nostalgic for a simpler time.
"Mr Subramaniayam could have had a sound practice at the English Bar, but he preferred to pursue his literary work, which is of a higher order" Lester Hutchinson, D es L., Former MP (british House of Commons)
"Stories told sardonically and succinctly" Philip Day, Sunday Times (London)

 

Alagu Subramaniyam was a Ceylon born writer, a Barrister-at-Law of the Honourable Society of Licoln's Inn and an Advocate of the Supreme Court of Ceylon. His father was a judge in Ceylon and his grandfather was a literary personage. He combined the dual professions of barrister and writer and was married to a graduate teacher.
