Read full description of the books:
A world-class tale of love and deceit, rivalry and destiny from the Lahore-based writer Uzma Aslam Khan.
'Standing in a room with eight thousand tiny creatures, witnessing them perform a dance that few humans even knew occurred; this was life. Everywhere she looked, each caterpillar nosed the air like a wand and out passed silk… When Dia watched one spin, she came closer to understanding the will of God than at any other time.'
Dia is the daughter of a silk farmer, Riffat – an innovative, decisive businesswoman. Like her mother, Dia seems at first sight unrestricted, spirited and resourceful. She seems free. But freedom has its own borders, patrolled by the covetous and the zealous, and there are those who yearn to jump the fence.
Daanish has come back to Karachi for his father’s funeral, all the way from America, a land where there are plenty of rules but few restrictions. When Dia and Daanish meet, they chafe against all the formalities. It is left to a handful of silkworms, slipped inside a friend’s dupatta, tickling skin, to rupture the fragile peace of both their houses – to make the space in which Dia and Daanish can create something together…

Read information about the authorI was born in Lahore, Pakistan, and grew up mostly in Karachi, though my earliest years were nomadic – two years in the Philippines, two in Japan, and three in England. It was in England, at age 6, that I wrote my first complete story, for which I was gifted a copy of Oscar Wilde’s Complete Fairy Tales. I’ve never stopped writing since and have the book with me still. My novels are: THE STORY OF NOBLE ROT (2001); TRESPASSING (2003), shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and translated into 18 languages; THE GEOMETRY OF GOD (2009), voted one of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2009 and also translated worldwide; THINNER THAN SKIN (2012), nominated for the Man Asia Literary Prize and the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature. An excerpt of THINNER THAN SKIN, “Ice, Mating,” appeared in GRANTA: PAKISTAN (issue # 112).
