About the book

Eddie Trusted, an English school teacher in Colombo, wants to spend his life with Menaka Rupasinghe, a vibrant Sri Lankan beauty, but as with all matters of the heart, there's an obstacle. If Eddie wants to wed Menaka, it is Thilak Rupasinghe, her orthodox terror of a father, who he must woo and whose farts he must kiss - Thilak wants his daughter to marry someone of the same race, religion and caste, and if possible from the same locality. In a desperate bid to make his dream a reality, Eddie tries to connect with Thilak in other ways, eating curries that make him bleed spice and breathe fire, driving drunk through red lights, threatening co-workers with violence, or sleeping with snakes. But will Eddie ever be good enough for a man who hates the colour of his skin? Sparkling with wit and featuring an endearing cast of characters, The Amazing Racist is the story of a man who finds home among strangers, of a father-in-law whose bark is worse than his bite, and of  bonds that grow to be stronger than family ties.
