Voices seldom heard in mainstream literature are so pleasant to experience. "And the World Changed: Contemporary Stories to Pakistani Women" is a collection of memoirs and short fiction from Pakistani women writers, who paint a vivid picture of their lives. With stories about what these women dream of and depictions of their everyday challenges in life, it is a unique anthology giving a glimpse at the soul of the Pakistani people. "And the World Changed" is a must for any world literature collection.
