This collection includes some of Manto's finest stories, ranging from his chilling account of the horrors of Partition to his portrayal of the underworld.

Saadat Hasan Manto has been called the greatest short story writer of the Indian subcontinent. He was born in 1912 in Punjab and went on to become a radio and film-script writer, journalist, and short story writer. His stories were highly controversial and he was tried for obscenity six times during his career. After Partition, Manto moved to Lahore with his wife and three daughters. He died there in 1955.

Khalid Hasan, writer, translator and journalist, is one of Pakistans best-known columnists and translators and his writings have appeared in various publications abroad. Khalid Hasan has written and edited 40 books, including several translations of the works of Saadat Hasan Manto and one collection of the stories of Ghulam Abbas. His own collections include Rearview Mirror, Scorecard, Give Us Back Our Onions, The Umpire Strikes Back, Private View, The Fourth Estate, Return of the Onion, and Question Time. Authors Details: Inam Aziz was a respected journalist who started out as an apprentice on an Urdu daily in Lahore. He worked in Peshawar on another paper and ultimately moved to Karachi where he rose to become news editor of Jang, Pakistans most widely circulated national Urdu daily. From print journalism, he went into broadcasting in the 1960s when he also worked for the BBC.
