Book Description: Penguin Books India, 2005. Softcover. Book Condition: New. . (illustrator). First edition. 13 x 20 cm. The great short-story writer Saadat Hasan Manto had also worked in the Hindi film industry in Bombay. In this collection of brilliant portraits of actors, producers, directors and musicians, Manto reveals with relish and inimitable irony the motivations that drove these men and women who have dazzled generations. The famous and the unknown inhabit these pages: Ashok Kumar emerges as a shy, brilliant actor, forever looking to flee the eager advances of his female fans; Nargis is just another young girl looking for companionship among her peers; we come to know of the obsessions of Sitara Devi, the unfulfilled desires of Paro devi, and the incredible dedication of Nawab Kaashmiri to his craft. Sharply insightful, delightfully gossipy and cheerfully malicious, the sketches in Stars from Another Sky provide a tantalizing glimpse into the glamorous world of films and bring to life a lost generation for today`s reader. Printed Pages: 207. Bookseller Inventory # 53821

Book Description: Alhamra, 2001. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. Between 1951 and 1954, Saadat Hasan Manto wrote nine letters to Uncle Sam. Only the first letter was written in 1951. The rest all seem to have been written in 1954. I say ‘seem to have been written’ because three of them bear no date. The last one is dated 26 April 1954. These letters not only tell us a good deal about Manto and his concerns but even more about his political views. The man who speaks through these letters is well informed about international affairs and critical of American policy. We also see Manto’s lighter side at play, enlivened by his caustic, at times savage, wit. We also learn a good deal about his friends and foes. He makes fun of Pakistani communists whom he always considered somewhat fake because they looked for a signal from their political gurus abroad before taking a position on any issue. A man with the independent temperament of Manto found such conduct pathetic and made no bones about it. I had long wanted to translate these letters into English not so much because of their intrinsic literary and historical value but on account of their readability. What we have here is vintage Manto.

Very slight rubbing to the two corners of the back panel, no other damage, apart from one page which has been dogeared. As moving as they are disturbing, and the stories in this volume are of immense relevance in these times, for they constituted chilling reminder of the consequences of communal politics. This book brings together works by three leading writers who witnessed the insanity of those months following independence of India in 1947 when hundreds of thousands were killed and millions rendered homeless.

Book Description: Alhamra, 2001. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. ‘What is characteristic of (Manto’s) best work is a wry, sardonic refusal to be shocked. His attitude is that of a man who can no longer be surprised by the things people do to each other, but who nevertheless retains his humanity and compassion.’ Times Literary Supplement ‘There is still no literary rival to Manto.’ The Independent, London ‘Manto is a master storyteller.’ Khushwant Singh SAADAT HASAN MANTO, the most widely read and the most controversial short story writer in Urdu, was born on 11 May 1912 at Samrala in Punjab’s Ludhiana district. In a literary, journalistic, radio scripting and film-writing career spread over more than two decades, he produced 22 collections of short stories, one novel, five collections of radio plays, three collections of essays, two collections of personal sketches, and many scripts for films. During the war, he worked for All India Radio in Delhi, but the best years of his life were spent in Bombay where he was associated with some of the leading film studios, including Imperial Film Company, Bombay Talkies and Filmistan. He wrote over a dozen films, including Eight Days, Chal Chal Re Naujawan and Mirza Ghalib. The last one was shot after Manto moved to Pakistan in January 1948. He was tried for obscenity half-a-dozen times, thrice before and thrice after independence. Manto’s greatest work was produced in the last seven years of his life, a time of great financial and emotional hardship for him. He died several months short of his 43rd birthday in January 1955 in Lahore. KHALID HASAN, journalist, writer and translator was born in Srinagar, Kashmir, and has written over 30 books. Ten collections of his own writings have appeared, including Scorecard, Give Us Back Our Onions, The Umpire Strikes Back, Private View and Question Time. He has translated most of Saadat Hasan Manto's best work and four of these collections have appeared since 1987 in London and New Delhi. He has also published The Women's Quarter, the selected stories of Ghulam Abbas. His translations of Raja Anwar's two books The Tragedy of Afghanistan and The Terrorist Prince were published in London in 1987 and 1997. He has also published two books on Kashmir: The Kashmir Holocaust and Azadi. One of Pakistan's best known columnists, Khalid Hasan has written for newspapers in many parts of the world. He worked for a specialised international news agency in Vienna from 1981 to 1991 and was Zulfikar Ali Bhutto's first press secretary. After spending five years in the country's foreign service - Paris, Ottawa, London - he resigned to return to the profession of journalism, barring of a two-year break - 1997-99 when he worked as head of the Shalimar Television Network in Pakistan. Currently, he is special correspondent of the Associated Press of Pakistan in Washington. Bookseller Inventory # 1326
