Product description

Review

Saba Imtiaz has taken good care in keeping the narrative true to life in Karachi. The subtleties of her interactions with policemen, rickshaw drivers, guards etc leave a refreshing impression about a city where life moves at a very fast pace. Readers would find this book interesting in 50 years time as well, when it will have a historic element to life in karachi. --By usman zia on April 10, 2014

It is not ground breaking, or earth shattering novel. A regular novel, by all means. What i loved about it was the details on Karachi and other parts of Pakistan. Being an Indian, all of it sounded strangely familiar and was easily related to. --By Ashutosh Dhar on June 14, 2014

For a long time, those interested in Pakistan (or South Asia in general) have had to be content with a series of fairly overwritten/overwrought novels. Not many voice this frustration in public, but I doubt I am the only one to feel it. Our wait is over. 'Karachi, You're Killing Me' is a tour-de-force rampage of a novel that tears through the realities of living in a metropolis-mega-city like Karachi as a twenty-something female journalist. From tracking down disappeared political prisoners to the travails of covering fashion week, Saba Imtiaz brings the city to life in a way that no book (with the possible exception of Mohammad Hanif's Our Lady of Alice Bhatti) has so far. --By Alex Strick van Linschoten on March 2, 2014
