AROUND THE FORT IN 80 LIVES is the first book in The Merchant City Series and is built on an entirely new concept in travel writing. Merchant cities worldwide are situated at the cross-currents of history and culture and are subject to constant renewal.

Galle Fort is no exception; the loss of some old families to Colombo and overseas means it has never been more important to document their fascinating history for future generations. This book is a work of passion and involved going from building to building interviewing people about their family history and current circumstances. Without this documentation, we feel that the buildings would lack real meaning. As storytellers, we view our task as being as fundamental to the preservation of the Fort, as the architectural restoration that is being carried out by UNESCO and Galle Heritage.
