This volume is part of the Pakistan Writers Series which presents translations of Urdu fiction.

Stories of Exile and Alienation takes the reader on a journey that explores the nature of pain born of dislocation and rupture. The drawing-rooms of Lahore's high society, the ghettos of Britain, an estate in the Pakistani countryside, the bedroom of a beautiful woman - these are the settings for these stories of love and identity, longing and becoming, exile and return; stories that probe with masterful precision and exquisite balance the condition of modern man at odds with himself.
