Overview

The Prisoner by Fakhar Zaman, Faakkhr

First political novel to depict the true story of the Gulags in Pakistan. Fakhar Zaman is a politician and a journalist, five of whose books were banned by the Pakistani military regime in 1978. As political advisor to Nusrat Bhutto, Zaman spent six months in prison, and this is the (ostensibly fictionalized) report of his incarceration. This is the first expose of the draconian measures the judicial and prison authorities used in their attempts to eradicate dissent in the gulags. The Prisoner, the most celebrated of Zaman's novels, is compelling reading. Unesco Collection.
