At Home In India : Stories, Memoirs, Potraits, Interviews – Qurratulain Hyder


2 in stock


At Home in India is an exceptional anthology of Qurratulain Hyder’s non-fiction and fiction writing. Here, in translation for the first time, are essays from her multi-volume, magisterial autobiography, Kar-e Jahan Daraz Hai, in which real people, eminent personalities, and landmark events, together, narrate the grand story of an illustrious family—and a subcontinent—grappling with Partition and its aftermath.

In addition, this book offers newly translated short stories; charming sketches of prominent women, like Hyder’s writer-mentors, Rashid Jahan and Anis Kidwai, and the film icon, Nargis; as well as rare, candid conversations with the author, on literature and life.

Set in four parts—stories, memoirs, portraits and interviews—this collection presents Hyder at her sophisticated, poetic and poignant best.
