A Long Watch is the story of the highest-ranking prisoner detained by the Tamil Tigers during Sri Lanka's civil war, a naval officer pulled from a dark ocean after a battle at sea. For eight years Commodore Boyagoda lived at close quarters with his declared enemy, his imprisonment punctuated by high-level talks about his fate, but also by extended conversations with his jailers and scratch games of cricket played in jungle clearings. Throughout, he observed his captors and fellow prisoners acutely, and with discreet empathy for the lives of others undone by war.

A memoir retold in Ajith Boyagoda's temperate voice, his is an unblinking relation of experiences difficult, moving and ironic. From going to sea, to war, imprisonment and eventual homecoming - he accepted successive realities as ordinary, in order to survive them.

His book is a rare first-hand account of a close encounter between the protagonists of Sri Lanka's civil war. Refusing sensationalism, A Long Watch offers a statement of human complexity amid polarized narratives of a brutal conflict.
