India and Pakistan: 1947 witnessed a bi-partite birth and death - and the resumption of life by a people divided, surviving to tell stories of then and now. Stories continue to be born, mapping memories in both India and Pakistan - two countries bound by a common past and a contested afterlife.
This volume brings together a variety of powerful Urdu stories written after 1960 by eminent writers from both these countries.
This collection presents the rich composite culture of the subcontinent through compelling translations.
