Logathasan (Das) Tharmathurai is a writer and information systems professional. He lives in Oakville, Ontario.
The Sadness Of Geography is Das' first publication. In January 1985, at the age of eighteen, Das left his home in Sri Lanka in a desperate bid to build a new life for himself and his family abroad after a deeply traumatic encounter with a group of Sinhalese soldiers. As his terrifying and often astonishing journey unfolds, he finds himself in a refugee camp, being smuggled across international borders, living with drug dealers, imprisoned, and more.
