Details

Deep into the jungle,
a young would-be hunter
goes after a barking deer
until he is stalked by a tiger
– and, through the confrontation,
finds himself.

This powerful novella,
written in the late 1980s
after years spent in the jungles of Thailand
fighting the government of the day,
can be read at many levels –
adventure story, Buddhist tale,
assessment of failed political struggle
or psychological search for wisdom.

The author, born in 1952 in southern Thailand
won the SEA Write Award in 1993
for a collection of short stories.
