Reef by Romesh Gunesekera, Romesh Guresekera

"Exotic," "spicy," and "delicious" are adjectives rarely applied to first novels; however, Reef had critics on both sides of the Atlantic smacking their lips. Reef is the coming-of-age story of Triton, a talented young chef so committed to pleasing his master's palate that he is oblivious to the political unrest threatening his Sri Lanka paradise. The London Times called it "incessantly pleasurable," and Booklist writes, "After slowly and reverently savoring Gunesekera's debut novel, it's easy to see why this flawless book was shortlisted for the Booker Prize."
