'Bitter Fruit : The Very Best Of Saadat Manto'

This book is absolutely unputdownable and is a must read for anyone who is fond of reading short stories or is keen to know about how the times used to be during the Partition era. It has got some really wonderful stories that will leave the reader completely spellbound. The stories have been translated into English from Urdu by Khalid Hasan and he has done a wonderful job at that. Manto is regarded as one of the best Indian writers of short stories and rightly so. Hard-hitting stories written with so much of conviction. I wish more people knew about Saadat Hasan Manto.

I have written a detailed review of the book here
