This multilayered work is the journey of a modern woman into her past. A woman who straddles two cultures and who confronts head on what she sees as malevolent in her own society. While under the duress of torture she recreates her past, including a poignant and unexpected love story that takes us into the world of Taliban. It is finally a moving account of the resilience of the human spirit in the face of great suffering.
The author's bold look at contemporary issues in Pakistan has produced not only a courageous work of Pakistani women's' writing but a haunting addition to the contemporary world of fiction.
