Book description
A rebellious yet human portrait of India's bustling Bombay, as told by one of the greatest Urdu writers of the last century: Saadat Hasan Manto.

'The undisputed master of the modern Indian short story' Salman Rushdie, Observer

In the 1930s and 40s, Bombay was the cosmopolitan capital of the subcontinent - an exhilarating hub of license and liberty, bursting with both creative energy and helpless degradation. It was also muse to the celebrated short story writer of India and Pakistan, Saadat Hasan Manto.

Manto's hard-edged, moving stories remain, a hundred years after his birth, startling and provocative. In searching out those forgotten by humanity - prostitutes, conmen and crooks - Manto wrote about what it means to be human.
