Product description

Review

"Hoque is one of the most exciting writers working both in and out of the subcontinent… Her fiction is made up of that rare mixture: searingly clean passion alloyed with the courage to take risks with form." - Ruchir Joshi

"Prose interleaves poetry interleaves photography. The effect is dazzling." - Mridula Koshy

"Abeer Hoque gifts her readers three distinct pleasures in this collection: the crystalline clarity of her photography, the quiet elegance of her poetry, and the vivid sensuality of her prose." - Salil Tripathi

"In lyrical and playful prose, sometimes in the cadence of bansuri melodies, other times with the bounce of hard rock, these stories speak of love, fierce as a runaway car, soft as a moan." - Mahmud Rahman, author of Killing the Water and translator of Black Ice

"Lush and lyrical, raw and unnerving, The Lovers and The Leavers is an impressive debut." - Sheba Karim, author of Skunk Girl and editor of Alchemy: The Tranquebar Book of Erotic Stories 2

"Written with cool assurance, the interlinked stories of this debut novel zing around our troubled and exciting globalized world." - Kaiser Haq, author of Pariah and Other Poems
