The Boy Who Speaks in Numbers PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Boy Who Speaks in Numbers free pdf "The Boy Who Speaks in Numbers" is a darkly satiric account of childhood in times of war. Set in Sri Lanka, the events it narrates could equally happen elsewhere - in all places where human deaths are reduced to numbers, and where guns do not differentiate between adults and children. Mike Masilamani's ironic narrative centers around an unnamed boy who is at home with numbers rather than words. Along with a constantly chattering - and prophetic - cow he bears witness to a bizarre and violent time. Matthew Frame's textured illustrations are a powerful testimony to the absurd horror of prolonged civil strife.
