Theena Kumaragurunathan is the son of a poet turned printer, whose debut novella ‘First Utterance’ was nominated for the 2016 Fairway National Literary Prize, English Language.

In reviewing the bookRoar.lk said, “…this book [First Utterance] is a definite yes, a book that could possibly even help redirect, redefine, and refine Sri Lankan Literature written in English.”
