Three Poisons is a suite of 3 brief tales “giving remarkably shiny and innovative expression, in a modern surroundings” of the 3 obstacles to freedom: greed, ill-will and fable. The environment is South Africa and, faraway from being sour or nihilistic, the tales are shot via with an affection for humanity—its cultures and its frailties. It “bears testomony to the subtlety of Pillay’s figuring out of philosophy, the slippery cleft among normality/madness and the complexity of normal lives in a rare society.” Nowhere does Kriben let us know what to imagine, yet he units us on a route to make our personal enquiry—or simply to get pleasure from 3 excellent, really unique brief stories.
