Description

This collection of Urdu short stories rendered in a naturalistic vein reveal themselves to be the work of a writer who has observed the lives of his people with the practiced eye of a shrewd observer and found them worth celebrating.

The Resthouse is a collection of Urdu Short stories depicting Qasimi's deep roots in his culture and locale. The stories portray common men and women with their disappointments and gullibility, joys and sorrows, and bring them across as strong characters.

A volume worth collecting, for those interested in true to life fiction
