In Other Rooms, Other Wonders

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
PULITZER PRIZE FINALIST

Passing from the mannered drawing rooms of Pakistan’s cities to the harsh mud villages beyond, Daniyal Mueenuddin’s linked stories describe the interwoven lives of an aging feudal landowner, his servants and managers, and his extended family, industrialists who have lost touch with the land.  Refined, sensuous, by turns humorous, elegiac, and tragic, Mueenuddin evokes the complexities of the Pakistani feudal order as it is undermined and transformed. Read what the critics had to say about In Other Rooms, Other Wonders.
