Basti by Intiz̤ār Ḥusain( Book )

46 editions published between 1979 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Basti is a beautifully written reckoning with the tragic history of Pakistan. Basti means settlement, a common place, and Intizar Husain's extraordinary novel begins with a mythic, even mystic, vision of harmony between old and young, man and woman, Muslim and Hindu. Then Zakir, the hero, wakes to the modern world. Crowds gather. Slogans echo. Cities burn. Whether hunkered down with family or furtively meeting to exchange news with friends in cafés, Zakir is alone in a country lost to the politics of loneliness
A chronicle of the peacocks : stories of partition, exile and lost memories by Intiz̤ār Ḥusain( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fifteen stories in this volume are all characterized by Intizar Husain's unique understanding of Muslim identity in the Indian subcontinent. Husain draws freely and imaginatively upon the rich narrative traditions of Hindu and Buddhist mythologies to reflect upon religious faith and identity, historical truth and moral delusions, power and the endless failure of reason." "The introduction offers a comprehensive analysis of Husain's craft and emphasizes the strong historical awareness that underpins a genius who, although shadowed by violent experiences, has not been overcome by them. Also included is an interview with the writer, which provides fresh insights into his life and the historic events that produced his work. This collection promises to be of much interest to the general reader of Urdu literature and literary culture and Indian fiction in translation."--Jacket

The sea lies ahead by Intiz̤ār Ḥusain( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1947 young Jawad Hassan gives up his ancestral home in India and his fiancee Maimuna for a dream country founded by Jinnah. And even though the newly created state of Pakistan is thronged by a huge number of zealous Muslims, ready to lead from the front, the rapid breakdown of law and order in Karachi makes many, like Jawad, retreat into reminiscence of their past in undivided India. It nudges them to probe the larger history of 'migration' and the rise and fall of ancient cities and civilizations. The second in Intizar Husain's acclaimed trilogy, The Sea Lies Ahead takes up the story of Pakistan where the first novel Basti (1979) ended: poised on the verge of breaking off from its eastern arm. Its title is a nod to the callous remark made by General Ayub Khan who - when asked what would happen to the Urdu-speaking muhajirs who had come from India and had, in a sense, burnt their boats - allegedly said, 'Aage samandar hai', the sea lies ahead. This is a novel about those muhajirs, among them the author himself, who went to the promised Land of the Pure, and were met with mistrust, prejudice and apathy. Equally, it is a rich portrait of the new culture of urban Pakistan fostered by people who came from the countless towns and hamlets in and around Lucknow, Meerut and Delhi. Bringing alive unforgettable characters with its sparkling prose, this novel is a powerful exploration of Islamic history and the story of Pakistan's great disillusionment

'Intizar Husain's stories often tread that twilight zone between fable and parable. His narratives are spun on an oriental loom' - Keki N. Daruwalla A man scours the town he left fifty years ago for some little evidence of past joys. Javed, who's returned to Lahore from East Pakistan, won't speak of what he witnessed 'there'. An old woman boards a train full of dead ancestors in her dreams. A sage who cannot control his anger must seek out a butcher for redemption. Mahaban, home of the monkeys once, is now a city full of human beings. Sheherzad, who once told Emperor Shaharyar a thousand-and-one stories, is now an old woman who has forgotten her yarns of fantasy. The stories in The Death of Sheherzad ably represent Intizar Husain's oeuvre, defying narrative tradition and exploring the past, specifically Partition, as a means of unravelling the present. He imaginatively revisits a syncretic, tolerant pluralistic past to analyse why the tide turned so irreversibly. Questioning everything - faith, violence, society - Husain probes the horrors of Partition in a manner as oblique as it is trenchant. Imbued with dark wit and literary brilliance, these stories at once shock, agitate and entertain

Roman, hvis handling udspiller sig i tiden inden delingen af Indien og Pakistan i 1947.
