"The Reality Check" book launched

30 August, 2020

Students of Gateway College Shaheen Abdul Gani and Yusuf Ali Barrie’s poetry book “The Reality Check” was launched at the Jam Fruit Tree Bookshop, Colombo recently.

The Reality Check is a soul-penetrating collection of confrontational poetry swimming in the boon and bane of the world. It aspires to travel through all that is conveniently omitted in contemporary society and to present the youth perspective of what a portrait of the future may look like.

However, don't be fooled! As young as the authors may be, the book embodies an authentic tone towards all that is festering in the gullets of modern day. So be prepared to rush out of the bandwagon of societal malpractice, for this book is ready to confront!

The book is edited by Jeremy Muller and published by The Jam Fruit Tree Publications.
