That story was about illicit underworld activities, and I got the feeling Schehehazade was hired as a "support liaison" by the criminal group who was providing the guy a safe house to lie low until the "heat" dissipates. The source of the heat isn't explicitly stated that I can recall, but I think the reader can presume they're trying to evade law enforcement or else another gang. I don't know that it's wise to draw assumptions about the whole culture based on a short story about criminals.(less)

Монголоор "Эмсгүй эрс" нэртэй хэвлэгдсэн зохиолчын сүүлчээсээ хоёр дахь номыг уншиж дууслаа. Энгийн жүжигчний амьдрал дээр дөрөөлүүлэн өөд болсон эхнэр нөхөр хоёрын бие биенээ гэх хүндэтгэлийг харуулсан гайхалтай ном болжээ. Тэрээр өөртөө хувийн жолооч авах яаралтай шаардлага гарснаас зохиол эхдэг. Та бүхэнд таалагдана байх аа гэж найдаж.

Эрчүүд Бүсгүйчүүдгүйгээр

Ганцаардал, хагацал гуниг, дүнсгэр, амьдралын бараан саарлыг, энгийн мэт санагдах түүхийг ховсдох мэт хүүрнэх нь үнэхээр хачин жигтэй.
Үгс өгүүлбэр, хэн бүхэн дураараа хэрэглэж хүссэнээрээ эвлүүлж өрж тавихад болсон явдлыг огт өөр өөрөөр өгүүлж болох аж. Энэ авьяасыг биширье! Амьдралыг хүмүүсийг ажиглаад, нөөцлөөд, шигшээд, хачирлаж бэлдээд, амталж чанаж шарж хуурж буцалгаад, ургуулж бодож өөрийнхөө өчүүхэн хэсгээс уусгаж нэмээд эцсийн бүтээл болгон уншигчдыг ширээ дүүрэн
