Book review: City of Spies4 min read 04 Apr 2015, 12:19 AM IST
A story about secrets in a Pakistani household, and the tragedy of global power play that can destroy lives
Decades have passed since the 1977 coup in Pakistan but the forces unleashed as a result have had such a devastating impact on the nation that it still continues to struggle with the legacy of the “Zia" years. Pakistani artists and writers have recalled those years of military dictatorship, the growing influence of the secret service, the bypassing of democractic and human rights, and the ensuing chaos. Sorayya Khan’s City Of Spies is another addition to the memory file.
