    Another book to be added to the list is
    LAHORE : Tales without End
    By Majid Sheikh.
    An excellent addition and highly recommended.

  3. Hey if you are going to include Louise Brown, then why not Fouzia Saeed’s “Taboo”?

    I would throw in Moth Smoke, but probably not in the top 10

  4. i think moth smoke is definitely worthy of a top 10 slot…especially as a work of fiction!

    My view is Majid Sheikh’s ‘Tales Without End’ is without doubt the finest book every written about Lahore, its history, its people and its tradition. A must for anyone interested in Lahore.
