Summary: In India's colonial past, in a time of political and social revolution, Ismat Chughtai masterfully unfolds her "magna opus", "The Crooked Line" the semi-autobiographical tale of a fiery-spirited, middle-class Muslim girl bent on exploring the shape and nature of consuming desire. Writing with the same honesty and passion as her scandalous short-story, "The Quilt," Chughtai exposes the complex relationships developed between women living and working in relative seclusion, and the intellectual and emotional contradictions lying in the heart of a rebellious country on the brink of independence from the British Raj and ultimately Partition.

Item Description: Sheep Meadow, 1994. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In 1944 Ismat Chughtai successfully defended herself before the Imperial Crown Court against a charge of obscenity for her short story "Lihaaf" - "The Quilt". The narrator of this story, a precocious nine-year old child, is sent to visit an aunt. This aunt, ignored by a husband whose only interest seems to lie in entertaining slim-waisted young boys, suffers from a relentless bodily itch, an itch, her niece discovers, no doctor can cure and only her maidservant can relieve. Frank and often wickedly comic, Chughtai's stories were the imaginative core of her life's work, drawn from memories of the sprawling Muslim household of her childhood. With her mastery of the spoken language, economy of form, and her fine eye for the details of the intricate and hidden world of women's experience, Chughtai captured the evolving conflicts of Muslim India. Her exploration of the myriad and subtle tyrannies of middle-class gentility, and, equally, of those unexpected moments of sexual liberation and spirit, is unrivalled in contemporary Urdu literature.

Item Description: B.R. Publishing Corporation, 1998. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. . (illustrator). First edition. 15x23 cm. Studying a creative writer conversationally and in moments much less guarded, one field facilitated in locating and appreciating his personal meanings of words and this in turn makes our appraisal of his works poignant. The role of interview with creative writers becomes all the more significant when they quite belong to us but originally write in languages not our own. In this context alone, this book which contains Ranavir Rangra`s interviews with sixteen modern women writers in twelve languages would attract our immediate attention. The interviewer strives to meet each writer on her own ground. None of the interviews in this volume betrays predispositions, studies preferences or even a passing platitude on his part to convey the impression that he is indulging in a verbal warfare to carry his own point. He sets the conversation so self-effacedly that, attuned to his work, the writer opens up on the creative issues vitally important to him. The book, perhaps the best of its kind on the Indian literature, presents scenes of cultural cross-roads in a vastly diversified society speaking different languages and learning to knit into a single whole. When self-righteous political programming in national integration may not succeed for want of a suitable state of mind, the pull of a joint creative participation as this one might work beyond expectation.

Item Description: Penguin Books India, 2009. Softcover. Book Condition: New. . (illustrator). . At a time when writing by and about women was rare and tentative, Chughtai explored female sexuality with unparalleled frankness and examined the political and social mores of her time. She wrote about the world that she knew, bringing the idiom of the middle class to Urdu prose, and totally transformed the complexion of Urdu fiction. Lifting the Veil brings together Ismat Chughtai?s fiction and non-fiction writing. The twenty-one pieces in this selection are Chughtai at her best, marked by her brilliant turn of phrase, scintillating dialogue and wry humour, her characteristic irreverence, wit and eye for detail.

Item Description: Norton. 1 Cloth(s), 2011. hard. Book Condition: New. Spanning a century of modern Middle Eastern literature—from the Arab poet Khalil Gibran to the Nobel laureates Naguib Mahfouz and Orhan Pamuk, from the great Syrian-Lebanese poet Adonis to the grand dame of Urdu fiction, Ismat Chughtai—this treasury reveals a people of diverse religions, languages, and cultures, yet united by the legacy of Western colonial rule. Los Angeles–based Iranian-American Reza Aslan, author of No god but God and Zealot: The Life and Times of Jesus of Nazareth, presents nearly 200 short stories, poems, excerpts from novels, memoirs, essays, and works of drama with the intent of creating a bridge between our estranged cultures."This landmark collection of writings from the modern Middle East reminds us of the region's magnificent and proud literary tradition. That would be gift enough. But the powerful voices within these pages also guide us past clichéd perceptions of the region as a hotbed for militants and extremists and bring to life the hopes, aspirations, and struggles—indeed the common humanity—of one of the world's most diverse and fascinating regions."—Khaled Hosseini"This mammoth anthology goes a long way toward achieving its equally mammoth goal: to shift American views of the Middle East away 'from the ubiquitous images of terrorists and fanatics.'. An impressive success that spans vast regions of time and territory, this is that rare anthology: cohesive, affecting, and informing."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)"This unique and splendid gathering of poems, memoirs, fiction, and essays, many translated into English for the first time from Arabic, Persian, Turkish, and Urdu, covers the past century of frenetic disruption and change in works of beauty, dissent, irony, and romance. Of particular interest are women writers. Parvin E'tesami (1907–41), of Iran, wrote in a poem titled 'Iranian Women': 'Her life she spent in isolation; she died in isolation. / What was she then if not a prisoner?' Born in 1940, Kishwar Naheed, of Pakistan, winner of the Nelson Mandela Award, writes, 'It is we sinful women / who come out raising the banner of truth.' Many truths are brought to light in this remarkably energetic and gloriously multicultural volume from a crucial part of the world."—Booklist 657. Bookseller Inventory # 41486

Item Description: Penguin Books, 2005. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: 'The ancient whore, the handmaiden of dimly remembered Hindu kings, the courtesan of Mughal emperors', the 'Paris of the East', Lahore is more than the grandeur of Mughal forts and gardens, mosques and mausoleums; the jewel colours of everlasting spring. It is also the city of poets, the city of love, longing, sin and splendour. This anthology brings together verse and prose: essays, stories, chronicles and profiles by people who have shared a relationship with Lahore. From the mystical poems of Madho Lal Hussain and Bulleh Shah to Iqbal's ode and Faiz's lament, from Maclagan and Aijazuddin's historical treatises and Kipling's 'chronicles' to Samina Quraeshi's intricate portraits of the Old City and Irfan Husain's delightful account of Lahori cuisine, City of Sin and Splendour is a marriage of the sacred and profane. While Pran Nevile paints a vivid sketch of Lahore's Hira Mandi, Shahnaz Kureshy brings alive the legend of Anarkali and Khalid Hasan pays a tribute to the late 'melody queen' Nur Jehan. Mohsin Hamid's essay on exile, Bina Shah's account of the Karachi vs Lahore debate and Emma Duncan's piece on elections are essential to the understanding of modern-day Lahore. But the city is also about Lahore remembered. Ved Mehta and Krishen Khanna write about 'going back' as Khushwant Singh writes about his pre-Partition years in Lahore. Sara Suleri's memories of her hometown, the landscapes of Bapsi Sidhwa's fiction, Khaled Ahmed's homage to Intezar Hussain and Urvashi Butalia's Ranamama are tributes to memory as much as they are tributes to remarkable lives and unforgettable places. Including fiction old and new--from Manto and Chughtai to Ashfaq Ahmed and Zulfikar Ghose; Saad Ashraf and Sorayya Khan to Mohsin Hamid and Rukhsana Ahmad, City of Sin and Splendour is a sumptuous collection that reflects the city it celebrates.
