"I was like the ancient mariner; under a terrible compulsion to stop western travellers and tourists and hold them by the lapel as I babbled off all the iniquities of the monstrous oriental madhouse.... "What is it like to experience waiting to be executed? It is lastingly horrifying even by vicarous experience. Believe me." But don't worry, there were lighter moments as well! Author won the Brissendon Scholarship for creative writing at the University of British Columbia.
