Editorial Reviews


'A passionate and important book - a brave and brilliant report from a conflict the world has chosen to ignore.' Salman Rushdie 'One of the finest books I've read this year...Basharat Peer's memoir reminds us why peace in Kashmir is important, not just to India and Pakistan, but to the world.' Hari Kunzru, Guardian "Curfewed Night" is the finest book I have read on the contemporary Kashmir conflict - literary, humane, clear-eyed and reliable. Basharat Peer has given voice, unforgettably, to a generation of Kashmiris who have never been heard, but who should be.' Steve Coll 'An extraordinary memoir that does a great deal to bring the Kashmir conflict out of the realm of political rhetoric between India and of the great achievements of "Curfewed Night" is its seamless mingling of memoir and reportage...It is a formidable challenge to tell the stories of Kashmir's suffering without numbing the readers' senses, and that Peer is able to do so is testament to his gifts and and sensitivity as a writer' Guardian 'Fresh and poignant...Peer's tone is non-judgmental..."Curfewed Night" has made his own valuable contribution to Orwell's mission making the political writing an art' The Economist
