Maps for Lost Lovers by Nadeem Aslam [in AsianWeek]

Maps for Lost LoversPersonal favorite of the month – and favorite of many others as it won the Kiriyama Prize just recently. A pair of unmarried lovers goes missing. Five months later, the woman’s brothers are charged with their murder. The burden is placed on the man’s older brother to bring not just the family, but their reeling London Pakistani community back together. Lush, contemplative, vivid.

Tidbit: Aslam was a favorite guest at SALTAF 2005 (South Asian Literary and Theater Arts Festival), a much-anticipated, highly-attended annual fall event sponsored by the Smithsonian APA Program and NetSAP-DC.
