Noorilhuda It's a shame that so many classic Pakistani authors are unavailable to an English-speaking world just because their works have not been translated by short-sighted publisher / government/ bureaucracy and academy.

But I've included some of the greats just the same - added a 100 to the original list. Also I've tried to cover the wide range of genres that Pakistani (and foreign-based Pak nationals) have produced in recent years.

Also, anyone interested in more Pakistani artists / authors, the following are GR book-links by foreign authors that provide details and works by Pakistanis:

Mohammad Sharif Aarpan AoA Noorilhuda sahiba! It is per chance that I stumble on this blog to which I consider it my luck. I fully endorse your view/grief that unfortunately our really famous writers/intellectuals are still unknown to Western writers and readers. Rabindernath Tagore undoubtedly a genuine intellect got the Nobel Award just because of translation of his work Anjel (sorry not quoting correctly) as his friends in Europe got it translated in English...to quote. I appreciate your concern and would request you to pen more articles on this issue. I although an ordinary humble writer both in English and Urdu and translator for the last two decades can put my bit to assist you. Rana M.Sharif 'Aarpan' Lahore.
