•  A crippled boy plays with his puppets and dreams of glory until the female cobra he disturbs by his show rushes at him.

      This tale has been translated into seven European languages, not to mention Braille, has been turned into a play in Paris, and has brought immediate recognition to its author, Saneh Sangsuk, born 1957, as a `great contemporary writer´.
