9788188965762: Distant Traveller: New & Selected Fiction

The accidental discovery of chapters from an unfinished novel and of unpublished stories, made the publication of this anthology of Attia Hosain s new and selected fiction an inevitability.

Attia s two worlds the Lucknow she grew up in and the London she later lived and worked in intersect and mesh in the stories and novel excerpts presented here, reflecting her deep and abiding concern with those caught in the cleft stick of history, and how they come to terms with it.

The distinctive quality of her prose subtle, elegant, with an uncanny ear for dialogue and sharp, yet sympathetic observation is displayed to stunning effect as she delineates the tension and pathos of lives and societies in transition.

About the Author:

Attia Hosain (1913-1998) was born in Lucknow and educated at La Martiniere and Isabella Thoburn College, blending an English liberal education with that of a traditional Muslim household where she was taught Persian, Urdu and Arabic. Influenced in the 1930s by the nationalist movement and the Progressive Writers Group in India, she became a journalist, broadcaster and writer. In 1947 she moved to England and presented her own women s programme on the BBC Eastern Service for many years, and appeared on television and the West End stage. She is the author of Phoenix Fled, a collection of short stories, and Sunlight on a Broken Column, a novel.
