Blue - The Tranquebar Book of Erotic Stories From Sri Lanka is a book that questions the existing sexual stereotypes in the country through it’s collection of highly erotic stories. The 17 stories compiled in the book have an erotic and titillating core. They portray situations and excerpts from the lives of their protagonists, where they all encounter their sexuality. The book also has four stories on lesbianism, Ms. J, Me, Room 1716 and The Lava Lamp, an area which hasn’t been tackled before in Sri Lankan literature. Other stories in the book are The Proposal, Undercover, Bus Stopand Veysee. The story Bookworm explores the concept of homosexuality among males. The book has been reprinted in India, a year after its release in Sri Lanka.
