Boyagoda has written two novels. “Governor of the Northern Province,” published in 2007, was a finalist for the ScotiaBank Giller prize. “Beggar’s Feast,” which has been published around the world to international acclaim, was nominated for the 2012 IMPAC Dublin Literary Prize and named a New York Times Editor’s Choice selection. His third, “Original Prin,” is slated for publication in 2018 and will tell the story of a Catholic professor posted to a Middle East country where he encounters a Muslim man from Boston who’s on his own journey.
