MLF and the Centre for New Writing present two extraordinary writers, who have both drawn on their Pakistani heritage to pen exquisite works of art.
Moniza Alvi is the author of six acclaimed collections of poetry including The Country at My Shoulder, Carrying My Wife and Europa, a Poetry Book Society Choice and shortlisted for the TS Eliot prize. Her forthcoming collection At the Time of Partition, inspired by her own family history, is set at the time of the partition of India and Pakistan in 1947.
Nadeem Aslam’s latest novel, The Blind Man’s Garden is set in Pakistan and Afghanistan in the months following 9/11 – an unflinching and lyrically told story of war and family loss. He is also the author of the multi-award winning Season the Rainbirds, Maps for Lost Lovers and The Wasted Vigil.
This event is part of the Manchester Literature Festival.
