The path of the tiger

The path of the tiger

de SILA KOMCHAI (Auteur)

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.
