Sadaik Shorts: The Sixth Enemy and Other Stories

A superb collection of 20 short stories that roam across lower Myanmar, from the capital to the coast to unnamed villages.  Ever-present in all of them are the women:  the wife, the aunt, the daughter and how their clans rely on them.  This is a collection undoubtedly of Myanmar, a voice that deserves to be joined by others in the future.
