Partition stories by the subcontinent's finest short-story writer Mottled Dawn is a collection of Saadat Hasan Manto's most powerful pieces on the Partition of the subcontinent into India and Pakistan in 1947. The book includes unforgettable stories like 'Toba Tek Singh', 'The Return', 'The Assignment', 'Colder Than Ice' and many more, bringing alive the most tragic event in the history of the Indian subcontinent. 'Manto's stories will endure as perhaps the best work of fiction on the Partition and its painful impact on the Indo-Pak ethos...' --Indian Express 'There is still no literary rival to Manto...(and) as communalism, religious intolerance and enmity between India and Pakistan continue to grow, his stories are still highly relevant.' --Independent 'Manto's irony and humanity raise him on par with Gogol.' --Anita Desai in The Spectator 'The undisputed master of the modern Indian short story.' --Salman Rushdie 'Manto is a master storyteller.' --Khushwant Singh Partition stories by the subcontinent's finest short-story writer Mottled Dawn is a collection of Saadat Hasan Manto's most powerful pieces on the Partition of the subcontinent into India and Pakistan in 1947.
