Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0979339014, Paperback)Moazzam's Sheikh's sexually-charged tales unfold against a backdrop of colonization and ethnic tensions in Pakistan and the Middle East, and they also explore the immigrant's dilemma in the United States. He maps the ways in which South Asian identities cohere and threaten to disintegrate at the contradictory intersections of memory, desire, connection, and exploitation... Sheikh's voice too, is unique, bringing to the English short story the flavor and verve of the Urdu/Hindi tradition. -- Arnab Chakladar, Professor of English, Carleton College, Minnesota
