THE TALE OF THE OLD FISHERMAN AND OTHER
CONTEMPORARY URDU SHORT STORIES
These twelve stories, each by a different hand, are the stuff of dreams, pain, longing, fear and hope. People from anywhere are here, but they speak and cry in Urdu, the language of Pakistan and India. Urdu has a rich literary tradition, and its evocations and idioms have been sensitively recreated in English.
