    The Return of the Butterfly is an amusing political satire in the facade of the diary of an inane, self-centred socialite.

    Summary of the Book

    The Return of the Butterfly, just like The Diary of a Social Butterfly, portrays Pakistan through the eyes of a self-centred, party-hopping socialite. It is a peculiar and comical narration of life in Pakistan, as seen by an impulsive and yet eerily charming high society party-hopper, Butterfly Khan. She loves social occasions and parties. And although she loves her husband, Janoo, she hardly understands the things that he is concerned about. Janoo is smart, knowledgeable and refined. On the other hand, Butterfly is only aware of the newest gossips in high society. She has to express her views about everything around her, especially in a language that is a classic sub continental blend, mashing up both English and the vernacular. What’s surprisingly hilarious, are her startlingly colourful expressions! Butterfly lives her life blissfully unaware of the events happening in the country, worrying only about her kitty parties and rumours floating around. The Return of the Butterfly is certainly going to be a laugh riot if you are seeking a hilarious read!

    Amusing Satire

    This book is the third book in Moni Mohsin’s social butterfly series. The first two books are – The Diary of a Social Butterfly and Duty Free.

    However, you don’t have to read the earlier books to enjoy this one, it reads pretty well standalone.

    A book depicting a lifestyle such as this would normally be quite abhorrent for me, but Moni Mohsin has a wonderful humorous writing style. She uses malapropisms and a broken Urdu-English vocabulary to really paint a hilarious picture of Butterfly an...
