TIMELESS NARRATIVES BY LITERARY LEGEND SAADAT HASSAN MANTO COMES ALIVE IN A CONTEMPORARY COMIC VERSION.
The book is a compilation of two short stories in comic format.
Set during the partition of India in 1947, Toba Tek Singh revolves around the inmates of a Lahore mental asylum and their impending transfer to India or Pakistan.
One of Manto’s best known short stories! The Dog of Tithwal is the story of a stray dog, in the village of Tithwal, who wanders into the Indian and Pakistani army picket posts. Through the dog’s eyes, Manto explores the human capacity for cruelty and kindness and the paradoxes of war.
