New: Daniyal Mueenuddin’s In Other Rooms, Other Wonders

In Other Rooms, Other Wonders is a book, we suspect, that Prince Harry could gain something from reading. Daniyal Mueenuddin’s collection of interconnected stories cycles through the intersecting lives of the gentry and the peasants on a farm in rural Pakistan. The stories, individually and collectively, dissect the complexities of Pakistani class and record the dissolution of old ways in a country that is quickly urbanizing. Readers who are intrigued can test the water first: Mueenuddin’s title story was published in The New Yorker.
