The Oxford Book of Urdu Short Stories

Rs. 1,350.00
Some of the best Urdu short stories, from the earliest to contemporary works, come together in this anthology; all in brand new translations. Some of the stories included here are available in different anthologies in other translations, but there are also several that have been translated for the first time, specifically for this volume. The book demonstrates the range of the genre in Urdu.
 
This anthology is a collection of twenty-two stories by seventeen writers, chosen by Amina Azfar. All the stories in it fall in the category of the very best. Amina Azfar has accomplished the difficult tasks of selection and translation with competence and hard work. She has ensured that the soul of every story is entirely grasped by its translation; and it appears to the reader that the stories were originally written in English. It is possible that lovers of short stories may say that the works of some writers have been left out. Perhaps the reason for this is that Amina Azfar has intended them for a subsequent volume.
