Spent the last few weeks reading this really slowly and enjoyably. It's @granta_magazine's Pakistan issue, published in 2010 and perhaps more relevant today than ever before. My favourite pieces were Basharat Peer's essay 'Kashmir's Forever War', Fatima Bhutto's essay on Pakistan's black Sheedi community, Kamila Shamsie's absolutely wonderful look at the history of pop music in Pakistan, and Nadeem Aslam's haunting piece of fiction - Leila In The Wilderness. There's also a superb piece on Jinnah, poetry by Daniyal Mueenuddin and pieces by Mohammad Hanif, Mohsin Hamid, Declan Walsh, and many others. The issue gives one an incredibly holistic view of the young country, is harsh where necessary, and forgiving where one must be. The issue is widely available in Indian bookstores and on Amazon.
