Abstract:

In this finely wrought memoir of life in postcolonial Pakistan, Suleri intertwines the violent history of Pakistan's independence with her own most intimate memories -- of her Welsh mother; of her Pakistani father, prominent political journalist Z.A. Suleri; of her tenacious grandmother Dadi and five siblings; and of her own passage to the West."Nine autobiographical tales that move easily back and forth among Pakistan, Britain, and the Unitd States...She forays lightly into Pakistani history, and deeply into the history of her family and friends...The Suleri women at home in Pakistan make this book sing."--Daniel Wolfe, New York Times Book Review"
