Essentially, this novel is about Sri Lanka and its people.This story is narrated by Sam, an illiterate houseboy born in a village too remote for maps. He travels to the nearby city to work in a river house as a domestic servant. Sam finds momentary happiness in a life muddied by difficult days and painful moments. It is about the tears he shed and the days he wished he could forget, of the people he loved and the others he loved to hate.Reaching across Sri Lanka, this is a story of a country gasping for fresh air in the midst of an unending civil war and the chronic trauma it creates in its people, afflicting every life in every race, leaving none untouched.When it was published, Sams Story was awarded the prestigious Gratiaen Award in 2001 for the best literary work in English in Sri Lanka.

This award is given by the Gratiaen Trust, set up on the initiative of best-selling writer Michael Ondaatje who received the Booker Prize for The English Patient which was later made into an award-winning film.
