Andaz-e-Bayan Aur

Jameel Akhtar
This is a comprehensive, first full-length interview of the leading Urdu novelist, Qurratulain Hyder that unfailingly highlights lesser known biographical details and creative aspects. It is an intimate and free-wheeling extended dialogue between two writers, a kind of literary disquisition that is rare in Urdu, and no writer can vie with Jameel Akhtar on this count. No other book explores this well-known author’s work in such detail. This is an important and insightful view of Qurratulain Hyder’s life and work.
