Life Cycle Of Homo Sapiens, Male

3.0 rating

The eighteen short stories in this collection portray in vivid snapshots some of the fundamental stages in the life of man. With sensitivity and humour, Colin Cheong develops some universal themes: the pain and isolation of rejected love: the frustration, expectation and anticipation of being ‘almost’ adult: undergoing initiating rites of passage to adulthood.

Above all, Colin explores man’s needs for woman and the nature, pitfalls and potential catastrophic consequences of this desire.
