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’.
