Dhaka is the world's tenth largest city with a population of more than 18 million people. We will bring ten unique short stories from this overwhelming, vibrant, capital city to English-reading audiences in the next installation of our popular "Reading the City" series. Dhaka is the capital city of Bangladesh, which emerged as a nation state in 1971 after a violent struggle for independence from West Pakistan. Bangladesh and Dhaka have a very complex political and social history and an incredibly rich and varied cultural inheritance. Comma are very excited to bring a host of short stories in translation to a new audience.
