    Stærk roman fra den srilankanske forfatter Nayomi Munaweera om en kvinde, der har begået den måske mest utilgivelige forbrydelse af alle. Væggene i min celle er malet kridhvide. De må mene, at farven har en beroligende effekt. Hvor jeg kommer fra, symboliserer den fravær, død og ensomhed. Folk skriver til mig. Mest mødre; som udspyr deres gift. Det er næppe overraskende. Jeg har gjort det utænkelige. Trukket sløret til side og krydset grænsen til et usynligt land. De hader mig, fordi jeg er det værste, man kan forestille sig. Jeg er den dårlige mor.
