Riassunto:

In India?s colonial past, in a time of political and social revolution, Ismat Chughtai masterfully unfolds her magna opus, The Crooked Line: the semi-autobiographical tale of a fiery-spirited, middle-class Muslim girl bent on exploring the shape and nature of consuming desire. Writing with the same honesty and passion as her scandalous short-story, ?The Quilt,? Chughtai exposes the complex relationships developed between women living and working in relative seclusion, and the intellectual and emotional contradictions lying in the heart of a rebellious country on the brink of independence from the British Raj and ultimately Partition.

L'autore: The first Muslim woman in India to obtain both a B.A. and a teaching degree, Ismat Chughtai (1915-1991) revolutionized Urdu literature. Her best-known and erotically charged work "The Quilt" exposed the relationship between a privileged woman and her maid, and touched off an obscenity trial that lasted four years. Accomplished translator of works by prominent Urdu women writers, Tahira Naqvi was born in Lahore, Pakistan and is herself a published short story writer (Attar of Roses and Dying in a Strange Country) working now on her first novel. She lives in the US and has taught Urdu at NYU and Columbia.
