In A Weretiger Comes to Town, Kezhakielie Whiso takes us back to the Kohima of the '80s and '90s, when the place was still a sleepy town, and contact with the outside world was rare and luxury. While the title story is set in the '60s, the rest of the stories are from his personal experience. They are placed in the decades that saw both the quiet, relatively peaceful times of the '80s and the tumultuous 90's when shootings and killings were at their heights in Nagaland. His stories, simple and straightforward, will give the reader more than a little peep into these ‘quickly forgotten’ decades. Whiso writes in a very personal ‘tone’ and yet his writing touches and appeals to the human emotions of love, heartbreak, death, hatred, and boyhood innocence.
