Product description

Review

"Qurratulain Hyder is a wonderful writer. She pairs enormous erudition with a careful eye to detail. Hers is one of the most important Indian voices of the twentieth century."

"An Urdu classic with a breathtakingly vast canvas."

"To Urdu fiction what A Hundred Years of Solitude is to Hispanic Literature."

About the Author

Qurratulain Hyder (1926-2007) is widely regarded as the grande dame of Urdu literature. To her fans and admirers she is popularly known as "Ainee Apa." The Prime Minister of India said at her funeral, "With her unfortunate passing, the country has lost a towering literary figure."
