The Scatter Here Is Too Great

A vivid and intricate novel-in-stories, The Scatter Here Is Too Great explores the complicated lives of ordinary people whose fates unexpectedly converge after a deadly bomb blast at the Karachi train station: an old communist poet; his wealthy, middle-aged son; a young man caught in an unpleasant, dead-end job; a girl who spins engaging tales to conceal her heartbreak; and a grief-stricken writer, who struggles to make sense of this devastating tragedy.

What at first seems to be a book about primary trauma, about an event, is actually a deeply self-conscious work about what it means to write about violence, or write about Pakistan at all.

The Scatter Here Is Too Great evades oversimplification by offering nuanced characters, rich textures of fragmented experiences, and a distinct writing style.
