38 Bahadurabad by Zeeba Sadiq combines a rich and evocative depiction of life in Karachi, Pakistan with an absorbing portrait of a remarkable household.
A blend of autobiography and fiction, this is the story of a young girl's experiences growing up in Pakistan in the late 1960's, as the narrator recalls the motley group of eccentrics who fashioned her upbringing, and the father who, following his death in 1972, was apotheosized to near sainthood.

The characters include her much older father , mother , grandmother , uncle , aunts ,a religious person , servants , but i liked the old man who sold pickles and his relationship with the girl. Growing up in Pakistan is very different than growing up in USA. Children are brought up not only by their parents , but relatives , neighbours , servants and others like the man who sells pickles.
Its not the most original book and it would appeal to readers in Karachi and /or Pakistan.
A nice , simple read.
