Between Clay And Dust (English) (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 405

In the news on '04/06/12' in 'INDIA TODAY MAGAZINE' 

Musharraf Ali Farooqi’s new novel, set in an unnamed Pakistani city shortly after Partition, unravels the lives of Ustad Ramzi, one of the greatest wrestlers of the land, who is now old and warmed only by the memories of his past, and the equally renowned Gohar Jan, a courtesan whose kotha once welcomed lords of the land but is now in danger of being shut down.

Through the course of this book we witness Ustad Ramzi’s almost fanatical devotion to his craft and his akhara, and the attempts of his younger brother Tamami also a wrestler to rise from the towering shadow of Ustad Ramzi. We witness, also, the unusual, unspoken bond that grows between the celibate wrestler and the elegant courtesan, both past their prime.

Spare, haunting and exquisitely written, Between Clay and Dust is a remarkably original offering from a novelist working at the height of his powers.

About the Author
Musharraf Ali Farooqi was born in 1968 in Hyderabad, Pakistan, and currently lives in Karachi. His previous novel, The Story of a Widow, was shortlisted for the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature 2010. He is also the highly acclaimed translator of Urdu classics Hoshruba and The Adventures of Amir Hamza, contemporary Urdu poet Afzal Ahmed Syed’s selected poetry and Urdu writer Syed Muhammad Ashraf’s novel The Beast. His children’s fiction includes The Amazing Moustaches of Moochhander the Iron Man and Other Stories and the picture book The Cobbler’s Holiday or Why Ants Don’t Wear Shoes.

Old School Romance at its Best

Musharraf Ali Farooqi is a Pakistani author of considerable repute. His writings are sensitive and portray human emotions in a beautiful muted way. Nothing garish and never too loud. They are written with so much politeness that you almost feel you are watching the story unfold in front of you.

Between Clay and Dust is set in an unnamed city in Pakistan and the plot revolves around a wrestler trying hard to save the dying art of wrestling and a middle aged courtesan whose kotha once welcomed lords of the land but is now in danger of being shut down. The period is just after independence i.e.

Never judge a book by its cover!

The book is a hard cover and gives a good feel on its arrival! However on opening it I was disappointed to realize it had little content, loosely spaced paragraphs and small chapters with little happening in them ..... .

The old world charm the author has tried to bring out , seems to give a peek here and there, but then again little content left me dis satisfied.

For those who like reading literature with good content & a well laid plot and not small chapters with little to offer, the book could be a disappointment!

A thick book with thin content!

Engaging and elevating

It's been quite a while since I read something so engaging and elevating at the same time. The style of the narrative is restrained, elegant and meditative, just like the characters and the backdrop of the story. The story of a wrestler and a courtesan during the sunset years of their lives, set against the backdrop of post-Partition Pakistan, is told in lucid but haunting prose.

Ustad Ramzi (the wrestler), Tamami (his brother) and Gohar Jan (the courtesan) create an intense tapestry of love, hatred, pride, redemption and a deep sense of longing and of loss. Nature also participates in the n
