Style of Writing and Major Works
The majority of characters in Panio’s books and short stories exhibit extreme characteristics. Either they are explosive or they exhibit the characteristics of a sadist. Over the years, he has also depicted persons that appear tranquil on the surface but are suffering from a tortured mental state. Throughout his career as a writer, Panio has made these types of characters his own.
A Familiar Beast: “A Familiar Beast” is the narrative of a guy who is disgraced and searching for forgiveness as he attempts to overcome the effects of his divorce. Out of desperation and loneliness, he embarks on a hunting expedition with a friend he hasn’t seen since high school, and the book chronicles their bizarre and hilarious weekend.
How to Get Into Our House and Where We Keep the Money is essentially two short stories with female characters. Panio has developed the female roles with sensitivity. While sketching the feminine characters, Panio’s wife also made vital contributions.
This tale focuses on four antagonistic women – Maude, Emma, Kara, and Paige.
