This week is the final week that you can get your hands on Qaisra Shahraz’s, A Pair of Jeans and Other Stories for 0.99p. Our friends at Amazon are offering this award-winning author’s wonderful collection of short stories at this very special price.
A Pair of Jeans and Other Stories presents an array of evocative worlds; young Pakistani women attempting to reconcile Western lifestyles to Muslim beliefs; wives releasing husbands from physical and emotional prisons and pillars of communities who suddenly find that they have lost their influence and power. With the stories taking place across feudal and contemporary periods and within Asian and British societies, A Pair of Jeans and Other Stories, demonstrates Qaisra’s versatility in revealing slices of life across cultures, countries and time.
For our Mancunian readers and those of you planning to be in the city next month. Qaisra will be at Manchester’s Stretford library on Friday 7th June at 7pm. Organised by Wordfest, this event, will see Qaisra read from some of her works. The reading is free to attend, but please email firstname.lastname@example.org to secure tickets.
Don’t say we don’t spoil you!
