Description

Finalist for the 2009 National Book Award in Fiction and named one of the Top Ten Books of 2009 by Publishers Weekly, TIME, The Guardian, and The Economist.

"Probably the best fiction ever written in English about Pakistan, and one of the best [books] to come out of south Asia in a very long time." FINANCIAL TIMES

"Reading Daniyal Mueenuddin’s mesmerizing first collection is like watching a game of blackjack, the shrewd players calculating their way beyond their dealt cards in an attempt to beat the dealer…In this labyrinth of power games and exploits, Mueenuddin instills luminous glimmers of longing, loss and, most movingly, unfettered love.” NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

About IN OTHER ROOMS, OTHER WONDERS

Passing from the mannered drawing rooms of Pakistan’s cities to the harsh mud villages beyond, Daniyal Mueenuddin’s linked stories describe the interwoven lives of an aging feudal landowner, his servants and managers, and his extended family, industrialists who have lost touch with the land. Refined, sensuous, by turns humorous, elegiac, and tragic, Mueenuddin evokes the complexities of the Pakistani feudal order as it is undermined and transformed.
