PODCAST: Saadia Faruqi Spins Tales of Life in Pakistan
My interview with Saadia Faruqi, author of the short story collection, BRICK WALLS: Tales of Hope & Courage From Pakistan, is now available as a podcast. BRICK WALLS is a heartwarming collection of short stories filled with larger-than-life characters and the seemingly impossible challenges they face. Through her short stories, she depicts everyday Pakistanis who struggle with poverty, violence, corruption and abuse, yet rise from the ashes stronger and more enduring.
