A must read for all Chughtai fans. Even more so for those who have no knowledge of her except, perhaps her unnecessarily sensationalized 'Lihaaf'. Special thanks to the translator for being as faithful to Urdu as he possibly can. Ismat is probably one of the most underrated Urdu feminist writers, IMHO. The book is a true insight into the making of a revolutionary writer at a time when girls were hardly exposed to basic education. A salute to her fighting spirit.
