This is a very wise book born from the experience of life fully lived. it is narrated with aplomb in a way that makes one feel that Oprah is talking to us individually. it made me pause and I found a course of action where I was confused.

A Tragedy

I loved hearing the book. it is a very skillful weaving together of the history of partition and Manto's life. Both the life of Manto and the partition of the sub-continent seems such a tragic waste of all that makes one human. it is something that generations have already paid for with blood and will continue to do so.
