In this volume, Muneeza Shamsie has collected a unique selection of Pakistani English fiction and non-fiction, about migration--at partition into the diaspora, and from the rural areas into the cities. The contributors include some of Pakistan's most eminent writers and some new voices, to generate a meaningful discussion with a wide perspective, on this century's burning issues: borders, barriers and identity.
