A monograph on the life and works of Urdu's most courageous and controversial woman writer in the twentieth century.

Chughtai has a special place among her illustrious contemporaries in the field of Urdu fiction- Rajinder Singh Bedi, Saadat Hasan Manto and Krishan Chander - in as much as she brought into its ambit areas of experience not explored before. Her writings have transformed the complexion of Urdu fiction in significant ways by bringing about an attitudinal change in assessing the merits of literary works.

Moreover, the freshness of her language - pert, racy, colloquial and idiomatic with a liberal sprinkling of words specifically used by women, makes her an immensely readable author.
