The Inside City, Paperback / softback Book


As India hurtles towards Partition, in Lahore's ancient inside city, Amrau Dar is not thinking about politics.

She is waiting for a prediction about her son, Awais, to come true.

Awais discovers not a secret garden but a secret city and his beloved sister, Maryam, discovers the world of maths.

Fearing that the prediction has gone wrong, Amrau takes a series of decisions that will change all their lives. *'The Inside City is a bold and vivid evocation of times and places on the fringes of our memories; a multi-patterned screen that reveals, through the secrets, mysteries, loves and tragedies of a multitude of characters, the inner life of a nation.

A compelling and hugely entertaining debut.' - Aamer Hussein, author of Another Gulmohar Tree'Brimming with compassion' - Mohammed Hanif, author of A Case of Exploding Mangoes
