Excerpts From Reviews:
This is an impressive collection remarkable for the high caliber of its translation elegant, unobtrusive, unslick, faithful and enjoyable

She (Ismat Chughtai) was a feminist by instinct, long before it was fashionable to be one, a progressive who know that literature changed more lives than pamphlets did, a Muslim who worshipped a shivmurti in Varanasi, palms outstretched, chanting Koranic verses aloud. She look real risks in both life and literature.
- THE TIMES OF INDIA
