Read full description of the books:



"Back in Karachi for his father's funeral, Daanish, a Pakistani student changed by his years at an American university, is entranced by the gazelle-eyed girl in the traditional dupatta who appears one day at the house of mourning. But the dupatta is deceptive: Dia is the modern daughter of a mother who, as the owner of a silk farm and factory, has achieved a degree of freedom rare among Pakistani women. It will take a handful of silkworms, fattened on mulberry leaves, to bring Daanish and Dia together. But their union will forever rupture the peace of two households and three families, destroying a stable present built on the repression of a bloody past." In this novel of modern Pakistan, Uzma Aslam Khan takes us deep into a world of radical contrasts, from the stifling demands of tradition and family to the daily oppression of routine political violence, from the gorgeous sensual vistas of the silk farms to the teeming streets of Karachi - stinking, crumbling, and corrupt.

Read information about the author

Ebook Trespassing read Online! I was born in Lahore, Pakistan, and grew up mostly in Karachi, though my earliest years were nomadic – two years in the Philippines, two in Japan, and three in England. It was in England, at age 6, that I wrote my first complete story, for which I was gifted a copy of Oscar Wilde’s Complete Fairy Tales. I’ve never stopped writing since and have the book with me still. My novels are: THE STORY OF NOBLE ROT (2001); TRESPASSING (2003), shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and translated into 18 languages; THE GEOMETRY OF GOD (2009), voted one of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2009 and also translated worldwide; THINNER THAN SKIN (2012), nominated for the Man Asia Literary Prize and the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature. An excerpt of THINNER THAN SKIN, “Ice, Mating,” appeared in GRANTA: PAKISTAN (issue # 112).
