Stories of the Night and Other Stories of the Night
A collection of ten philosophical short stories and seven poems from a young Pakistani writer. Appreciated by some of the best writers in India and Pakistan, like Muneeza Shamsie and Qurratulain Hyder, this book is a promising companion for lovers of fiction who would like to see the world from a modern Pakistani point of view. "I read [the stories] with interest and really liked [them]. I also thought some of the language and imagery was really lovely eg. 'autumn leaves dancing around like light in a crystal maze' and really good characteriszation, eg. 'His tortured feet heaved his rackety legs along with a definite purpose', 'His face was a mass of spaghetti lines, each engraved with a memory of its own'. etc." --- Muneeza Shamsie.
