    On a flight back to US from India, about half an hour was left to land in San Francisco, everyone was asleep, when we heard the captain speaking over the intercom All I heard was something about how we were about to land in Japan In my sleepy state I assumed that something was wrong with the plane and was about to panic when my husband told me the rest of the captain s message

    A real bowl of literary prawn crackers you eat and eat and they taste of nothing, they re entirely synthetic, like a form of extruded plastic, but you can t stop and then you realise the whole bowl is gone and what was that all about This is not a good book and yet it was compelling, I can t deny it, a smooth, snaky insinuating monologue which in retrospect and often in real tim

    In one sustained monologue, a young Pakistani named Changez relates his life story to an unidentified American man in a cafe in the city of Lahore Changez, a Princeton graduate who once worked as an analyst for a Manhattan financial firm, tells us how his optimistic view of America began to darken in the aftermath of 9 11 I liked this book for its elegant style and outsider s vie

    I ve been trying to read some good Pakistani writing in English for a while now And I m glad I made an introduction with Mohsin Hamid s The Reluctant Fundamentalist, who earlier wrote Moth Smoke, a novel, which Rahul Bose is now adapting into a film.Lately, there has been a flowering of young Pakistani writers like Hamid and Kamila Shamsie Cartography, Salt And Saffron , and in ma

    An eerie, quietly powerful story The structure is simple enough a monologue A cafe in Lahore, and a young Pakistani is explaining to a silent American how he came to be an enemy of America There s menace there something is about to happen, and soon You re not told why the American is there, or what he does, or quite why young Changez is telling him these things But there it is This v

    An Open Letter to Americawhich unfortunately I read late, around 5 years late Why unfortunate B coz I might have liked it or probably loved it since I was a naive reader back then i.e I was into Sheldons and Archers and closer home Bhagats blushes Anyway, I was well aware when this book hit the literary world and took it by storm A dashing title, a Pakistani author, a reluctant subjec

    One of the most contentiously rated novels I ve seen hereI d had the book for 2 3 years probably, when, a couple months ago, I determined that I needed to make shelf space This was one of a few books I decided to get rid of, even though it was unread But it was so short, and I had looked forward to reading it So I put it beside books I was reading and would soon read, then picked it up
