  • SEVENTY FOUR

    ‘A post pandemic story written way before the pandemic. A haunting little book about second chances, last days and human relations that survive the unsurvivable.’ Mohammed Hanif, author of A Case of Exploding Mangoes ‘Any culture’s science fiction is its dream of what its future could be. Now we live in a global culture, and Faraz Talat’s Seventy Four shoots right to the heart of all our current fears and hopes. It’s an intense experience, poignant and memorable.’ Kim Stan Robinson, author of Blue Mars ‘Scientists become saviors in times of plague, but their attempts to exert control over pathogens and politics go awry in Faraz Talat’s science fiction novella Seventy Four. Razia Ntikoladze, eminent scientist and Pakistani emigree, is locked in a race against a deadly new contagion and her own mortality; before she can save the world, she has to escape the colloquium’s merciless eugenics project. A daringly brilliant literary experiment which pits humanity against its own worst enemy—itself.’ Bina Shah, author of Before She Sleeps

  • A PIECE OF THE MOON

    In A Piece of the Moon, we visit a world of familial bonds riddled with dreams, unmapped journeys, and divine interventions. Framed together as in a group photograph, each character is given a voice including the author who others himself as Dillan and remains omnipresent. Sitting with them as family members, we share food and listen to charismatic stories with asides from history, politics, World War II, and the partition of India. Within one frame, a collage of many frames breaks the linearity of the narrative. Time overlaps; past and present jostle for a third space; the ordinary becomes extraordinary; simple things assume archetypal shapes; and daily activities morph into parables. Dillan?s journey becomes a voyage into his inner darkness; and his autobiography, the Everman?s story. The camera clicks, and they all move out of the frame and fade slowly into the sepia of time.

    The family tree grows with each chapter. Weathered by the springs of youth, autumnal sorrow of human loss, the tree throngs with birds of memories and the fruits of joy and suffering. And we, under its shade, rest briefly preparing for the next departure.

    A Piece of the Moon is a literary masterpiece. A must read!

    In his magnum opus, A Piece of the Moon, Mushir Anwar paints a lush landscape of the subcontinent?s culture and traditions. His exquisite storytelling, suffused with his trademark whimsy, is the perfect foil for the questing philosophical ruminations that thread through the narrative. At the heart of this novel is a teeming familial setup of singular characters who mirror the interconnectedness and fracturing of pre-Partition Hindustan and post-Partition Pakistan. Anwar renders a bygone era with remarkable precision that imparts immediacy and invites immersion. Through family vignettes, we are brought to spaces of kinship and solitariness. His reflections on love, loss, the nature of the Divine itself make for transcendental prose-the reader ever-aware of how transitory and ephemeral our times are and how vital the treasury of memory.

  • THE LUNAR MEN

    In the 1760s a group of amateur experimenters met and made friends in the English Midlands. Most came from humble families, all lived far from the center of things, but they were young and their optimism was boundless: together they would change the world. Among them were the ambitious toymaker Matthew Boulton and his partner James Watt, of steam-engine fame; the potter Josiah Wedgwood; the larger-than-life Erasmus Darwin, physician, poet, inventor, and theorist of evolution (a forerunner of his grandson Charles). Later came Joseph Priestley, discoverer of oxygen and fighting radical.

    With a small band of allies they formed the Lunar Society of Birmingham (so called because it met at each full moon) and kick-started the Industrial Revolution. Blending science, art, and commerce, the Lunar Men built canals; launched balloons; named plants, gases, and minerals; changed the face of England and the china in its drawing rooms; and plotted to revolutionize its soul.

    Uglow’s vivid, exhilarating account uncovers the friendships, political passions, love affairs, and love of knowledge (and power) that drove these extraordinary men. It echoes to the thud of pistons and the wheeze and snort of engines and brings to life the tradesmen, artisans, and tycoons who shaped and fired the modern age.

  • MEFISTO

    Mefisto, a brilliant modern-day retelling of the Faust legend, explores the relations between science and the real world, and between the scientist and the human cost of his explorations. Gabriel Swan, a maths prodigy obsessed with the idea of order, becomes involved with the mesmerising trio formed by sad, obese Mr. Kasperl, who is like someone “from a country where no one else lived”; lovely, mute Sophie; and the Mephistophelian Felix, whose appearances always foretoken disaster. In an abandoned mansion, their changing relations, and Gabriel’s quest for a “formula that will reduce the disorder of common things to an equation,” slowly and inevitably land him in his own private season in Hell.
