Synopsis: As a young man, Lasantha escapes from a brutal patriarchy in Sri Lanka to come to the United States on a full scholarship in order to become a celebrated Broadway star. In rainy Tacoma, he meets his nemesis, Kyle, and enters into a traumatic relationship. In a few months, after being callously abandoned by Kyle, Lasantha is diagnosed with a chronic, degenerative, incurable neurological disease. Despite the bleakness of the journey that awaits him, Lasantha carries within him a tiny spark, reminiscent of the fireflies in his vibrant, childhood memories.

About the Author: Lasantha Rodrigo, originally from Sri Lanka, currently resides in Normal, IL, USA. He earned his Ph.D. from Illinois State University in English Studies (Creative Writing focus). Prior to that, he also earned two Master’s degrees in American Literature (St. Bonaventure University) and English (University of Rochester) respectively. Lasantha specializes in creative nonfiction, specifically, life writing. Drawing from his past experience as an actor, Lasantha’s work capitalizes on sensory perceptions and interactions. The ultimate goal of his writing is to generate a thoughtful and humane response from his audience.
