New in Paperback - The Pakistani Bride

Bapsi Sidhwa is one of Pakistan’s finest writers

This, her first—and arguably best—novel, is finally available after being out of print since 1983

Prescient and provocative in its assesment of the plight of women in tribal society in Pakistan, the first of Bapsi Sidhwa's novels is a story of marriage and commitment, of the conflict between adherence to tradition and the indomitable force of a woman's spirit.
