    Picked this up solely because the cover model, who is friend of a friend, is eye wateringly gorgeous Turns out, sometimes you CAN judge a book by its cover.

    The author has surprised me with his rich and elegant skill prose like writing in these short stories, in English I was already a fan of his Urdu skill which he demonstrated in his earlier work in classic Urdu and Persian kuch chaand the sare asmaan It is a work of pure literature where the story is thin but the substance is detailed and well researched Not only did I get a richly florid detailed explanation of a bygone era, but I also got a good lesson in history This work along with his earlier one are a must read for any serious student and can of Muslim history in India.

    Anti climax on anti climax on anti climax on anti climax on anti climax 0.5 x 5 2.5This is how i would describe the book which is actually 5 unrelated novellas in 1 While each contains passages of pure ecstasy in which a novice meets a great shayar poet , there is so much background noise that makes no sense whatsoever that it becomes laborious Also, the endings left me equally baffled and dissatisfied.And wish the author had provided Urdu transliterations too of the various couplets ghazals in English.


  4. Sadiq Kazi Sadiq Kazi says:

    Brilliant work that requires a lot of patience But the pleasures are manifold The rich tapestry that the author weaves of the time gone by makes the heart yearn for slowness and tehzeeb in this fast paced world Wish and hope that Shamsur Rahman Faruqi has a few such aces up his sleeve.


  5. Meki Meki says:

    A brilliant work of historical fiction that immerses the reader in a past 17th to 19th century India predominantly Mughal Delhi that was highly literate, sophisticated and cosmopolitan.
