Top 5 Pakistani Authors You Need To Read Amidst This Epidemic

Amidst this epidemic that’s going on in our country and around the world, reading is that habit that will help us in staying sane.

In the last six months or so, I got a chance to explore some very talented Pakistani authors. Each of them have a unique writing style. Being an avid reader, writing style of the author is one of the important elements that compels you to keep reading. Here are those authors who inspired me with their depth of writing:

1. Musharraf Ali Farooqi:

His book “Merman And The Book of Power” was publish was last year. Believe me when I tell you that this book is one of the masterpieces in Pakistani Literature.  As the title suggests, this book does talk about a merman and the tale is mixed with the historical era of Abbasid caliphate. Being a Muslim, I have studied the history and a little bit about this caliphate in my teens. But the tales weaved in this book are from a whole different point of view and it’s intriguing.⁣
