About the Translator:

Tahira Naqvi has been translated Urdu fiction for journals and periodicals in Pakistan and abroad for many years, and has translated many of Urdu's well known writers, including Manto (Another Lonely Voice: The Life and Works of Saadat Hasan Manto); Ismat Chughtai (The Crooked Line; My Friend, My Enemy), Ahmed Ali and Premchand. The author of many short stories herself; she is also a published novelist. Dying in a strange Country is her most recent collection of stories.

Syeda S. Hameed has been translated from Urdu to English for some time, and among her translated works are Mohammad Yunus' Letters from Prison; S.M.H. Burney's Iqbal: Poet Patriot of India; Khan Abdul Wali Khan, Facts are Facts; and, most recently, Hali's Musaddas. She has also edited the four centenary volumes of Maulana Abdul Kalam Azae, India's Maulana

Excerpts From Reviews:

This is an impressive collection… remarkable for the high caliber of its translation – elegant, unobtrusive, unslick, faithful and enjoyable

- KRISHNA BALDEV VAID

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

At a time when women were only writing about "how to be a good wife," she set about exploring – and exposing – middle class Muslim mores through sharp observations, a rapier-like wit and a vivid recall of a rambunctious childhood spent in a sprawling middle class Aligarh family.

Testimonials
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
