    "Ich habe Burma seit 1995 mehrere dutzend Male bereist und bei den Recherchen für meine Romane 'Das Herzenhören' und 'Herzenstimmen' wurden mir immer wieder Märchen und Fabeln erzählt. Zum einen waren das bewegende Geschichten, die von dem mythologischen Reichtum der verschiedenen Völker Burmas erzählten, von der Spiritualität der Menschen und wie tief buddhistisches Denken die Gesellschaft über Jahrhunderte geprägt hat."
