In this collection of stories by Pakistan’s finest women writers we are introduced to the intricate narrative patterns and compelling cadences of a rich literary culture which deserves to be better known. Spanning the entire fifty years of a new nation’s history, and ranging in style from harsh realism to poetry and parable, these stories (translated from Urdu) provide the unique perspectives on social, political and psychological issues that official histories ignore.
