about

This book is a collection of 17 short stories. All these stories reflect Pashtun customs and culture. Some of them even reflect a part of contemporary history of Afghanis tan and the tragedy of war in Afghanistan and it shows how Afghans even lot of difficulties, fight for their freedom. But it also talks about those warlords that use peoples pure feelings for their own benefits and then call it Jihad. Memoirs of an Afghan Village is a collection of Anzor’s Pashto short stories, translated into English by Arley Loewen and Homayun Hotak. Loewen is a specialist in Afghan-Persian cultural studies. This is Mr. Anzor’s first collection of stories in English translation. The first English translation of “Memoirs of an Afghan Village” was well-received. This second edition has been re-illustrated and the text has been edited again with the hope of a more faithful view through Mr. Zarin Anzor’s unique window into Pashtun culture.
