In this second collection of short stories, Niaz Zaman brings the versatility of her pen and imagination to look at the world around her and tell the stories of men and women caught up in the business of living. While she often narrates her stories from the perspective of her women characters, she is also able to enter the minds of her male protagonist. What does it feel like when a man bids farewell to a child after divorce? How does a raw provincial react when he is in a cosmopolitan city for the first time? Zaman’s wry humour is also evident in stories such as ‘Behind the Mosquito Curtain’. Those who have read and enjoyed Zaman’s first collection of stories will find much pleasure in the fifteen stories of this anthology.
