“Where Do My Novels Come From?” Habib University Talk, April 2015

I had the pleasure of giving a public lecture at Habib University in Karachi in April.  It was only a few days after Sabeen Mahmud’s murder, a terrifying event for the arts and activist community in Pakistan, and a huge loss for us all.  Although the occasion was somber, I was lucky to reunite with Kamran Asdar Ali, from UT Austin, and Asif Aslam Farrukhi, now of Habib University. The last time we were at an event together was in Dhaka, Bangladesh when we joined a conversation with Bangladeshis about the ’71 war.  My talk was videotaped and can be found here.
