Village Fool and other Stories

by Chetambe

The stories in this collection capture the laughter and tears of a twenty-first-century society as it sways forwards and backward in the search for happiness. In both the village and the city, emerging values confront the older system in an increasingly globalized and digitized social-economic context. The lives of the ordinary village and city folk form the arena for sharply dramatic tensions as integrity confronts dishonesty, hope tackles despair, children challenge the old, women stand up to men, the citizens question the leaders and humanness flows in an ethical desert. Hovering above these tensions is the unwavering tenacity and resilience of the people;
they are a people who find time to laugh with and at themselves amidst the gathering whirlwinds of change.
The enduring wizardry of these stories lies in the way the reader gets wholly immersed in the fictional pool of their laughter and pain.
