Altar of Tradition is a collection of ten short stories told in seamlessly woven prose. The stories explore themes of love, loss, sexual abuse and the shackles of tradition in the face of modernity. There is a story about a young girl whose life takes a traumatic turn after being the victim of sexual assault; another about a community forced out of their home on Christmas eve by a horde of blood- thirsty, gun- wielding assailants; and another about a widow who has to swear before an ancient shrine to prove her innocence in the death of her husband.
