Product Description


A wonderful writer. She pairs enormous erudition with a careful eye to detail. Hers is one of the most important Indian voices of the 20th century. — Amitav Ghosh

Qurratulain Hyder has a place alongside her exact contemporaries, Milan Kundera and Gabriel García Márquez, as one of the world’s major living authors. — Times Literary Supplement

In confidently writing about India’s Buddhist and Hindu past, Hyder, a Muslim by birth, also provides an example of the secular literary culture of the subcontinent that has largely remained untainted by sectarian tensions. — The New York Review of Books

About the Author

Qurratulain Hyder (1926-2007) is widely regarded as the grande dame of Urdu literature. To her fans and admirers she is popularly known as “Ainee Apa.” The Prime Minister of India said at her funeral, “With her unfortunate passing, the country has lost a towering literary figure.”

Love her Aug. 13 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Qurratulain Hyder is one of the few amazing writers, editors, translators of Urdu literature. I just am amazed how many people don't seem to know of her. The introduction written by Aamer Hussein offers such an amazing insight into her personality and life. I had not heard of Aamer Hussein, so will be getting some of his works to check him out.
