Product description

Review

In this anthology there is no shortage of illuminating moments, either cultural or literary. . . . The authors regularly include terms from their native languages, a hybrid form that reminds the reader that these women truly write in the borderlands. [And the World Changed], skillfully collected and assembled, admits us into that life between worlds." - The Bloomsbury Review

"I could not put this book down!And the World Changed is a groundbreaking collection that has the potential to propel contemporary writing by Pakistani women to the center of postcolonial literary canons. . . . A book to savor, to think upon and share with everyone." - Chandra Talpade Mohanty, author ofFeminism Without Borders, Decolonizing Theory, Practicing Solidarity

"A pathbreaking anthology, a feast of women's writing which challenges stereotypes of Pakistani women since Partition. It is essential reading for anyone interested in this emerging literature." - Janet Wilson, Professor of English and Postcolonial Studies, The University of Northampton

"Muneeza Shmasie's gem-like collection is once personal, autobiographical, and national. The stories suggest that the tiniest personal moments connect, directly or obliquely, to the traumas of national and political identity formation." - Zohreh Sullivan, Professor of English, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

"Of immense historic, political, and literary significance . . . these words will change us as they invent worlds we thought we knew." - Sunaina Maira, Associate Professor of Asian American Studies, University of California, Davis

"[A] must for any world literature collection." - Midwest Book Review: Wisconsin Bookwatch

"A welcome addition to the growing corpus of women's writing from the subcontinent. . . . Highly Recommended." - Choice Magazine (starred review)
