Ismat Chughtai (1915–1991). Her unabashed, often risqué style of writing fetched her much notoriety in her lifetime, but today she is adulated as a radical voice well ahead of her times. This collection of writings on Chughtai curates critical readings of her by modern scholars as well as her contemporaries. Read along with her interviews, these writings offer a more holistic way of understanding Chughtai—beyond narrow gender terms—as a politically aware, socially engaged writer, and an artist concerned with humanity. Printed Pages: 264.
