Synopsis: An account of Woolf's connection with Sri Lanka and Clarke's "acquaintance" with him. Between 1904 and 1911, after he graduated from Cambridge and before he married Virginia, Leonard Woolf served as a civil servant on Sri Lanka, rising from a mere Cadet to Assistant Government Agent. In 1913, he published The Village in the Jungle (1913), bold for its time novel based on his experience as a colonial administrator, but told from a native point of view. Clarke never met Woolf, but in 1979 he was invited to become him. He was given Woolf's part in Baddegama (1981), a Sinhalese movie version of The Village in the Jungle directed by Lester James Peries. The shooting took part partly in the jungle and partly in the same court room where Woolf had presided more than half a century earlier.
