Intikhab-e-Khutoot-e-Ghalib Compiled by Tanzeem-ul-Firdous This is a representative selection of Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib’s letters which are considered fine specimens of exquisite Urdu prose. At that time poetry was a more favoured form of expression in Urdu and modern Urdu prose was beginning to take shape. Ghalib’s letters along with Sir Syed Ahmed Khan’s essays are the most important landmarks in the history of modern Urdu prose. Ghalib’s bubbling wit and a keen sense of humour made these letters good examples of humour in prose, too. Also, some of his letters carry important information about his own life and works. Sindhi Adab Aik Mukhtasir Tarikh Attiya DawoodThis book covers the history of Sindhi literature and the changes that have occurred in the field during the last seventy years starting with a summary of Sindhi literature before Partition. The author covers all genres of Sindhi literature including short stories, poetry, travelogues etc. The book analyses contemporary literary topics, tendencies, and trends, as well as literature influenced by political and social affairs. It thus covers not only Sindhi language and literature but also the history of Pakistani literature. Noak JhoakTanz o Mizah, Haqqee kay Purkar aur Bagh o Bahar Qalam se Shanul Haq HaqqeeThis is a collection of Shanul Haq Haqqee’s satirical literary essays.

Whatever he wrote, whether it was poetry or translation, be it criticism or journalism, it had a tinge of linguistic penchant, for his chief concern was words. These essays are written in Shanul Haq Haqqee’s characteristic style. This book can be used as a supplementary reader by the students of Urdu literature as well as by general readers.Intikhab: Ibn e SaeedCompiled by Asif FarrukhiThis book is a selection of Ibn e Saeed’s works covering the entire span of his creative output. With the recent posthumous publication of two undiscovered writings Mehwar and Roshniyoun ka Shehar, Ibn e Saeed has emerged as a writer to be reckoned with in the realm of Urdu literature. Ibn e Saeed was a well-known journalist and writer who published more than 40 short stories through a long career but for some strange reason, did not put together any collection of his work.Poora MantoTehriron kay Mustanad MutoonJild ChaharumCompiled by Shamsul Haq UsmaniThis collection of Manto’s work differs from previous Manto anthologies in that it contains the notes and references of the compiler as he endeavours to maintain textual accuracy. Manto made a deep and lasting impact on Urdu literature through his celebrated short stories. Many of his post-Partition stories centred around the communal horrors of the period. The compiler has dug into the historical records to find the rare and all early editions. This would be one of Manto’s most complete and authentic works.
