Winner of Golden Aster Book, World Literary Prize 2020, Pramudith Rupasinghe is a Sri Lankan novelist known as The Writer Without Borders. He chooses to set his stories outside of his culture, country, and people and writes living in the locations where his stories are set.
He also works as a humanitarian diplomat for the last 18 years, and most of his stories are inspired by the people facing adversities as he has had the opportunity to explore the unexplored side of human life, connect with cultures that have not been in touch with the external world, and experience the emotions of people who have been through trials. Trials are more distressing than words could ever describe. Through his experiences, he endeavours to relate their meaningful stories, giving those who have been forgotten, sometimes even ignored, an opportunity to be heard.
Pramudith is internationally known for his fiction ‘Behind the Eclipse’ and ‘Bayan’; his books have been translated into several languages and launched internationally.
