Obit - Qurratulain Hyder

Just heard the sad news of the passing away of one of my favourite Urdu writer: Qurratulain Hyder. Here is a link to a nice OBIT.

Her novel, Aag Ka Darya (River of Fire), is one of the best novels (Urdu or otherwise) ever written.

Thanks for your comments, Luke and Sean. And no, Luke. I have not read "The Kite Runner".
