Homesickness is especially debilitating for those who don’t know where their home is – or even if they have one. In Roshi Fernando’s Homesick, a series of interconnected stories about a tight-knit group of Sri Lankan families living in south London, most of the characters are some way through the process of discovering that they don’t belong anywhere.
