Novellas by Intizar Husain

Day and Dastan, a volume of two novellas by Intizar Husain, has just been released by Thornbird, an imprint of Nyogi Books. Says Asif Farrukhi, writer, translator, and biographer of Husain:

Din (Day) is a perfect little gem about displacement, leaving old homes, journeys, unspoken love and a haunting sense of fleeting time. It now comes alive in a fine English translation. Dastan is not connected to Din, but is framed by it. In both, issues of the present raise their Hydra heads.”
