"How many Pakistans?" questions of space and identity in the writing of partition.
Ariel: A Review of International English Literature, 32(3) pp. 155–179.
This article examines the intersections and troubling disconnections between territorial space and political, cultural and communal identity in Indian and Pakistani Partition fictions. Concentrating particularly on the Urdu short-stories Sadat Hasan Manto (in English translation), it uses studies of 'border-lifecycles' to reflect on the real and imagined geographies of the Indo-Pakistani border after 1947.
