Description

Sidhwa's tales are certainly well-written and her characters are vividly etched-out. Two stories from the perspective of American woman living in Lahore are particularly astute and full of sharp observations. The language is evenly elegant and the stories explore the experiences of women with the eagle-eyed insight that Sidhwa is best-known for.

A wife worries for her family's survival during the 1965 Indo-Pak war. A mother is horrified when she learns that her daughter wants to marry her American boyfriend.

An American housewife living in Lahore has a tempestuous affair with a Pakistani minister. An aged matriarch travels to the USA to discover she must confront a traumatic memory from her past.

Finely nuanced and laced with Sidhwa's sharply comic observations, this is a stellar collection of tales from one of the subcontinent's most important and beloved writers.
