With Fusillade Jean Arasanayagam adds to her already acclaimed list of poetry books. Though the setting of the volume is primarily Sri Lanka, the tone of the poems is universal. Through this Arasanayagam once again renders voice to the thousands of oppressed people around the globe.

The poems transport the reader to the island nation scarred by a long civil war where thousands have lost their lives and the world has not even winked an eyelid. The poems, in this collection, also reflect the personal sense of alienation that remains the hallmark of most of Arasanayagam's works.

Writing from a doubly marginalized space, Arasanayagam's Fusillade poses problems, raises questions, voices protests -a gripping book which brings to fore the anxieties that the modern world tries to grapple with everyday in some way or the other.
