Direct and startlingly intimate, Hussein's stories are set in troubled times - in Karachi, Lahore and London, where war, partition and military rule form the backdrop for the anticipation and anxiety of changing homes and family life, the hopes and failures of love and work. Turquoise is a collection of stories that illuminate the passions and fears of a world more complex and more beautiful than the media images of Islam and Pakistan convey.
Aamer Hussein was born in Karachi, Pakistan, and moved to London in 1970. A graduate of the University of London (School of Oriental and African Studies) where he studied Urdu, Persian and history, he is the author of several collections of short stories - Mirror to the Sun, and This Other Salt - and the edited anthology Hoops of Fire: Fifty Years of Fiction by Pakistani Women (the last two published by Saqi Books).
