      The stories in Their Language of Love are rich and languid, told in a fashion that is engulfed in an affluent and graceful historic aura Bapsi Sidhwa s work is not new to me but I fall in love with her writing even every time I read her Her short stories are as much witty and sarcastic, vivid yet baffling as her novels She portrays her characters as people you would meet in your everyday life, and yet they are powerful and inspiring, offering an unpretentious exuberance.The most attractive part [...]

      I did not know it was a collection of short stories I am prejudiced in that a very few great authors make really great short stories And Bapsi Sidhwa I had heard about her controversial, Ice Candy Man, that went on to become a movie by Deepa Mehta, controversial too or too controversial D The first story The Gentlemanly war was a bit dragging too, and I was almost going to shelf it under my incomplete reads But then, towards the trail end, it turned out to be nice, Breaking it up , made it a lot [...]

      My first of Sidhwa and not bad at all The stories fit perfectly together like puzzle pieces as shown in the cover , even though I felt that The Trouble Easers hardly belonged in a collection like this It has to be my favorite of all stories in this collection beautiful, poignant, meaningful Where others were slightly bold and daring, this one story exemplifies simplicity of both language and thought.Anyway, this book must not be mistaken for a cultural depiction of Pakistan for Sidhwa deals most [...]

      I am not normally a fan of short stories I like thick, fat novels But, after attending the Lahore Literary Festival earlier this year and attending Bapsi Sidhwa s talk, I was motivated to pick up her latest book And it turned to be such a pleasant surprise It s an insight into a magical era of Pakistan which we didn t see but her rich characters and description allow you a sneak peak into an another time Funny and touching,and sometimes sad, the stories were a pleasure to read.

      An amazing collection of short stories of Pakistan and India before and after the partition It includes different cultures and religions and the silent harmony and loud conflicts among them.
