Research help? I’m…

Research help? I'm starting work on a paper on representations of the LTTE (Tamil Tigers) in Sri Lankan diaspora fiction (Tamil, Sinhalese, Burgher, etc.) in English. I'm already familiar with Sugi Ganeshananthan's LOVE MARRIAGE and Ondaatje's ANIL'S GHOST. (Plus, of course, my own work in BODIES IN MOTION.)

Would really appreciate any further suggestions on relevant work that I should look at. This paper will focus on diaspora work only, and focus on fiction, but of course if you have suggestions in other genres (poetry, creative nonfiction, plays, film), or for work from Sri Lanka itself, I'd be happy to include that in appendices, and possibly as a component of later work, should I eventually expand the scope of this project.

Thank you very much!
