5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling and cinematic
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 February 2021
I very much enjoyed this masterful work of narrative nonfiction, which weaves together the stories of five Karachiites to tell the story of the city's darkest and most violent years. As pen portraits, they work well, but there's also a remarkable section when two of their stories come together in a cinematic set-piece during a terrorist attack. Highly evocative of a place, and emotionally engaging. One comes away almost dizzied by the sense of lives coming together and apart, and the richness of the interior lives of everyone around us ... A strangely hopeful book, in as much as these five individuals are all pushing, in their own ways and for their own reasons, for a better life and a better city.
