In Other Rooms/Other Wonders

I have just finished reading a most interesting and unexpectedly entertaining small book.  Its title is “In Other Rooms/ Other Wonders,” by Daniyal Mueenuddin.  The author comes from Lahore, Pakistan and Elroy, Wisconsin.  He now lives on a farm in the southern Punjab of Pakistan.  In essence, the book is a succession of short stories about life in Pakistan.  Each of these stories provides a keen look into the culture, psyche, and day-to-day life of Pakistanis from even the homeless and the humblest farmers to the great merchants, entrepreneurs, and politicians.  The writing is occasionally a bit difficult to understand when the author uses terms that are unique to the Pakistani culture. However, the storytelling is a joy–––filled with surprises and timeless insights that are universal in nature.  This young author is a fine talent, and one should expect more literary gems to be produced by him in the future. I heartily recommend this exceptional piece of literature.
