Review:

"Matt Reeck and Aftab Ahmad’s inspired new translations reaffirm the timelessness of Manto’s prose and revitalize it for a new generation of English-language readers." (Times Literary Supplement)

"Here was a writer whose excellence and vision consumed his life... The writer proves that he knows the truth better than God. Reading Manto is like trying to understand an entire civilization in two lines. He spoke too much in few words, which invariably made the words sharp enough to pierce through our hearts." (Culture Trip)

"The undisputed master of the modern Indian short story" (Salman Rushdie Observer)

"Manto's irony and humanity raises him on par with Gogol" (Anita Desai Spectator)

"The seer of Pakistan" (New Yorker)

Book Description:

The bustling life of the most extraordinary city in the India subcontinent is captured in the short stories of Saadat Hasan Manto, one of the greatest Urdu writers of the last century.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 196 x 128 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This title comes with an introduction by Mohammed Hanif. In the 1930s and 40s, Bombay was the cosmopolitan capital of the subcontinent - an exhilarating hub of license and liberty, bursting with both creative energy and helpless degradation. It was also muse to the celebrated short story writer of India and Pakistan, Saadat Hasan Manto. His hard-edged, moving stories remain, a hundred years after his birth, startling and provocative. In searching out those forgotten by humanity - prostitutes, conmen and crooks - Manto wrote about what it means to be human. Matt Reeck and Aftab Ahmad s translations reach into the streets and capture Manto s world in contemporary, idiomatic English. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9780099582892
