Manto is absolutely one of the best short story writers of the century. His stories attack the moral hypocrisy of society and religion. Many of his stories are based the turbulent time of the partition of India. His stories were so powerful he was jailed and condemned by both Pakistan and India.
He is absolutely the BEST..

i honestly will probably never read everything that can be found within this collection, but i definitely appreciate having all of his famous short stories on hand. pieces like toba tek singh, khol do, etc. are all shining examples of manto's gritty style. you can tell many of the translations are slightly off, but theyre still better than the ones you'll find floating around the internet.

and at this price, its a great value

I bought this book out of curiosity not knowing anything about the author. I've completed about one fourth of the book and am entranced with every story. Manto's writing is highly descriptive; not wasting a single word. Some stories have made me feel sad, have made laugh, and the one I just read, "By The Roadside" left me speechless. This story - to me - is a poem. I will be looking for more of Manto's work and plan to do some research on this talented writer. We can all identify with Manto's characters as he writes a great deal about relationships, politics, religion and love. What a pleasure to read Manto and be caught up in his characters and settings.
