  • THE BHABHIS OF LAHORE & OTHER FORBIDDEN TALES OF THE CITY

    We live in a magnificent country, one which Is full of curious beings and sheltered stories that roam in the whispers amongst those beings. I bring to you such stories that make Ama’s and Aba’s eyes pop open – as if they have seen a ghost, which they have not- but these tales, in all their glamour, are not those to be retold, yet I have taken upon myself such a task. Tales of heartbreak, of men who deserved better, of women who loved too dearly, of centuries old dusty mattresses covered with newly purchased silk sheets that bounce to this day, of jinns and their families, and of course – living, breathing tales of you and me and all of us.

  • HIROSHIMA AND OTHER STORIES

    “This is a fascinating book, elegantly translated into English by Shama Askari. It comprises a novella and 13 short stories with two being the author’s own translation. Written by Ibn-e-Sa’id (better known to his contemporaries as M.H. Askari), these literary compositions. are unique in many ways. Ibn-e-Sa’id started his career in the closing years of the Second World War as an officer in the public relations department of the British Indian Army. From there he got a ringside view of the war and the surrender of Japan. He also personally experienced the sensitivity of his Indian colleagues fighting for a power that had occupied their own country and forced the war on them. Ibn-e-Sa’id also witnessed the start of the age of decolonization and how these events led to the break-up of societies. Most of the stories are written against this backdrop and subtly capture the paradoxes and nuances of these extraordinary global developments. The author’s insight into politics, society and human nature is so profound that his writing is no less than prescient, considering that these stories were written more than six decade ago. We read about a princely state and its Muslim elites and their Baray Sarkar who are so detached from their own non-Muslim population in lifestyle and culture that they appear to show more allegiance to their departing foreign rulers. A story openly describes the financial corruption that accompanies business deals in this time of transition. There is actually a Mister Five Percent involved in a sugar mill transaction. The polarization and globalization of politics and the return of racism emerge in many stories. Ibn-e-Sa’id’s book must be read for us to understand what is happening in Pakistan today.” Zubeida Mustafa Journalist and author “Ibn-e-Sa’id’s fictions are an invaluable addition to the growing body of rediscovered Urdu literature. His stories, many of them set in South East and East Asia during the Second World War, are elegantly crafted and bear the hallmark of lived experience. His short novels are gripping and unusual. It is a delight and a revelation to see so much of this fine author’s work in translation in this generous selection of long and short stories:’ Aamer Hussein Author.

  • SEA PRAYER

    NEW YORK TIMES bestseller An illustrated book on the refugee crisis that will break your heart in under 48 pages, from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author of The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns, and And the Mountains Echoed. A meaningful read to gift this holiday season. Intensely moving. . .Powerfully evocative of the plight in which displaced populations find themselves.- Kirkus, STARRED Review

    Hosseini’s story, aimed at readers of all ages, does not dwell on nightmarish fates; instead, its emotional power flows from the love of a father for his son.- Publishers Weekly, STARRED BOX Review A short, powerful, illustrated book written by beloved novelist Khaled Hosseini in response to the current refugee crisis, Sea Prayer is composed in the form of a letter, from a father to his son, on the eve of their journey. Watching over his sleeping son, the father reflects on the dangerous sea-crossing that lies before them. It is also a vivid portrait of their life in Homs, Syria, before the war, and of that city’s swift transformation from a home into a deadly war zone. Impelled to write this story by the haunting image of young Alan Kurdi, the three-year-old Syrian boy whose body washed upon the beach in Turkey in September 2015, Hosseini hopes to pay tribute to the millions of families, like Kurdi’s, who have been splintered and forced from home by war and persecution, and he will donate author proceeds from this book to the UNHCR (the UN Refugee Agency) and The Khaled Hosseini Foundation to help fund lifesaving relief efforts to help refugees around the globe. Khaled Hosseini is one of the most widely read writers in the world, with more than fifty-five million copies of his novels sold worldwide in more than seventy countries. Hosseini is also a Goodwill Envoy to the UNHCR, and the founder of The Khaled Hosseini Foundation, a nonprofit that provides humanitarian assistance to the people of Afghanistan.

  • DISTANT TRAVELLER

    The accidental discovery of chapters from an unfinished novel and of unpublished stories made the publication of this anthology of Attia Hosain’s new and selected fiction an inevitability. Attia’s two worlds the Lucknow she grew up in and the London she later lived and worked in – intersect and mesh in the stories and novel excerpts presented here reflecting her deep and abiding concern with those caught in the cleft stick of history and how they come to terms with it. The distinctive quality of her prose subtle, elegant, with an uncanny ear for dialogue and sharp, yet sympathetic observation is displayed to stunning effect as she delineates the tension and pathos of lives and societies in transition. A feast of fiction.

  • THE OTHER IN THE MIRROR

    With a Mantoesque aura pervading this collection of stories from across the

    great divide of 1947, the reader becomes complicit in fiction?s inimitable

    capacity to subvert established ?truths?. A tribute to the power of story-telling,

    this is a heart-warming, humanizing and inspirational collection that deserves a

    wide readership.?

    ? Ayesha Jalal

    ?Reading through this mosaic of enthralling stories, my emotions relentlessly

    oscillated between agony and hope. While these stories brilliantly bring to life

    familiar characters, they also manifest the compelling essence of fiction that

    takes you to unfamiliar paths. I?m sure this book will ignite in readers a desire

    to rise above boundaries and divisive politics.?
