  • A crippled boy plays with his puppets and dreams of glory
    until the female cobra he disturbs by his show rushes at him.
    The life-and-death struggle that follows has but a predictable end
    - or has it?

    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'.
