His stories revolve around village life and are often seen through the eyes of a child. Into the everyday fabric of life, described with a keen eye to detail, the writer weaves an extra dimension, an element of the mystical and the surreal. As in ancient legends and myths, these stories give significance to the age-old process of birth, death, and rebirth that makes up the life of the land and those who live by it. The stories are also concerned with such fundamental values as honor, integrity, and self-esteem.
