it was amazing
bookshelves: supernatural, favorites

This short story is so far my first pick for the 2016 Hugo awards. It is an incredibly well written, and extremely fascinating look into the culture, traditions and fairy tale tropes of another country. It is also the story of an American immigrant looking back to its family and cultural roots.
It is a novella about a disenchanted young Pakistani professor who grew up and lives in the United States, but is haunted by the magical, mystical tales his grandfather told him of a princess and a Jinn who lived in Lahore when the grandfather was a boy.
