In writing laced with irony, wit, and satire, he finds the foibles of restricted struggle and the mistakes devoted through all events. but his fundamental concentration continues to be at the sufferings of the lads, girls, and kids who stuffed the refugee camps and the devastated villages to which they've got returned.
