Manto Selected Stories

Sadat Hasan Manto has been called the greatest short story writer of the Indian subcontinent. He was born in 1912 in Punjab and went on to become a radio and film-script writer, journalist, and short story writer. Manto's stories are vivid, dangerous and troubling and they slice into the everyday world to reveal its sombre, dark heart.
