Booklink Reading on Thursday, Nov 8th, at 6:30 p.m.

My new book, Thinner than Skin, is now out in the US, and I will be reading from it this coming week.

WHEN: Thursday, November 8th, at 6:30 p.m.
WHERE: Booklink Booksellers, Thornes Marketplace, Northampton, MA.

If you live in the area, please come!

Two very kind writers comment on the book:

‘Smart, fierce, and poignant: perhaps the most exciting novel yet by this very talented writer.’ Mohsin Hamid, author of The Reluctant Fundamentalist.


'In gorgeous prose, Khan writes about Pakistan, a land of breathtaking beauty, and the complex relationships between people who are weighted with grief and estrangement, As her characters' lives play out against the backdrop of the external world whose violence gradually closes in on them, Khan brilliantly probes the fatal limitations of human understanding. A novel of great lucidity and tenderness, filled with splendid descriptions of the land, the people who have always inhabited it, and those who are irresistibly drawn to it.' Thérèse Soukar Chehade, author of Loom, and Winner of the 2011 Arab-American Book Award.

Great to know that your novel is out!
I read your interview, and I have to say that the story about a woman in the Kaghan valley whose world is torn apart by a photographer from Karachi who lives in San Francisco, all that in a geography of glaciers telling of the power of movement... made me buy the book immediately.
