By Sheetal Bahl on March 24, 2012
Format: Paperback
This collection contains 14 pieces - largely new short stories, a photo essay, a graphic "novel-ly" piece, and a couple of short excerpts, and the pieces are by-and-large, uniformly good. A lot of the writing is not necessarily based in Pakistan, but deals with people originating from there and settled on foreign shores, but nonetheless sheds an interesting perspective on the country. The pieces seem to have been curated carefully to be consistent in style - they are all simple tales - both in style and substance, but all very human and real, and hence very touching. The only pieces I didn't enjoy were the visual ones - they were wanting in themselves, and didn't fit into this collection at all. Overall, a recommended read.
