After hearing an author interview on PBS, I decided to give myself this book for Christmas!
This work is a collection of short stories. However, the common thread in the story is K.K. Harouni, a businessman and landowner in Pakistan. The stories are about his family and his servants. His person gives his view of Mr. Harouni plus we get a peak at life of many people in Pakistan, ranging from the very rich to the very poor.
Mueenuddin beautifully captured the lives of his characters. And, I was able to see how difficult life is in Pakistan, even for the richer women. I will re-read this collection in the summer and give another review at that time.
In the meantime, if you need to read a work for an international reading challenge, make sure to add this collection to your TBR.
