Forgot This

by Suzan Abrams

In describing the sudden rise of Pakistani literature a few days ago over here I forgot this nifty little number from HarperCollins India, published in September last year. Called Neither Night Nor Day: 13 Stories, By Women Writers From Pakistan; and edited by Rakhshanda Jalil, the stories that wrap an older Karachi with modern times, call the reader's attention to the ordinariness of women's lives imbued by haunting evocative emotions and while gracefully side-stepping the limitations of time and space. Some tales might prove painful to the heart.
