Description

Present day Urdu short story writers have maintained the tradition of their predecessors and are faithful chroniclers of the present times. In from, technique and treatment they display high standards and can stand shoulder to shoulder with story writer in any language. This collection testifies this view.

Human follies and frailties are portrayed faithfully and fearlessly. The heights that human beings rise to and the love, affection and sacrifice they are capable of are presented with skill and sympathy.

The Wanderer in this collection is a story by the renowned writer Qurratulain Hyder. It is a pen-portrait of a hitchhiker. Interwoven in are world pictures depicting the horrors of war.

Readers may find some well-known writers missing in this collection. This was unavoidable. The purpose was to present to the reader a collection comprising the well-known and the not-so-well-known writers. The collection should be viewed from that angle.
