<p>In <em>Duration</em>, a country in the throes of civil war brings two women together, each with a longing for something; for family, for freedom, for their unknown futures.</p> <p>“Hasanthika Sirisena is a masterful storyteller. A riveting page-turner, artfully paced and gorgeously written.” —Anne Valente</p> <p>“In this taut, masterfully controlled work, Sirisena examines the cumulative impact of repression and how violence inflicted on both the physical world and the psyche fragments human life into parts. A rare story that examines modernity, a clash of cultures and how human connection can be at once so frail and yet so fraught between complete strangers.” —Marie Mutsuki Mockett</p> <p>“Sirisena’s story transmogrifies from page to page, deceptively structured as a procedural only to shapeshift into a complex negotiation between cogs in the war machine—all the while engaging in universal themes of family, sexuality, and identity. You’ll be rapt from beginning to the surprising, wow-worthy end.” —Leland Cheuk</p>
