A brilliant novel. Beautifully written AND a gripping story about modern life in Pakistan, wealth, foreign influence, youth disaffection as well as a love story interweaved with lovely retellings of some of the ancient myths that give depth to this country's beauty as well as upheaval. I first heard of this author via her blogs about women's rights in Pakistan, and recently her New York Times op-ed railing against the stereotypes present in the tv series, Homeland.
