Fragments of Riversong

Fiction by Farah Guznavi

Price: ৳300.00

Farah Ghuznavi is a writer, translator and newspaper columnist, with a background in development work. A glutton for punishment, she holds three University degrees from the London School of Economics. After working in several countries with the NGO sector and the UN, Farah remains an unrepentant idealist despite the existence of empirical evidence that suggests it might be better to think otherwise. She began writing fiction in the desperate hope that putting stories down on paper would get them out of her head and send them on their way. So far, this strategy appears to be working, one story at a time. Farah’s work has been widely-anthologised in the US, UK, Canada, France, Singapore, India, Nepal and her native Bangladesh. Her story Judgement Day was Highly Commended in the Commonwealth Competition 2010, and Getting There placed second in the Oxford GEF Competition. She is currently Writer in Residence with Commonwealth Writers, and has recently edited Lifelines, an anthology of new Bangladeshi writing for Zubaan Books, India. Farah has been a panellist at the South Asian Literature Festival (UK), Ncell Nepal Lit Fest, and the Apeejay Kolkata Lit Fest, CALM Fest Shillong, Kolkata Lit Meet (KLM), Lit for Life Chennai and the Bangalore Literature Festival in India. She is also on the organising committee of the Hay Festival Dhaka. Farah’s work has featured in collections such as Emails from India: Women Write Home (Seraphim Editions, Canada), The Storm is Coming (Sleeping Cat Books, USA), Curbside Splendor Issues 1 and 2 (Curbside Splendor, USA), Not Your Mother’s Book…On Travel (Publishing Syndicate, USA), The Path – Winter Issue 2011 (The Path to Publication, USA) and Woman’s Work (Girl Child Press, USA) in North America; The Monster Book for Girls (EXAGGERATED Press, UK), Lady Fest: Winning Stories from the Oxford Gender Equality Festival (Dead Ink, UK) and Journeys (Sampad, UK) in Britain; as well as The Rainbow Feast (Marshall Cavendish, Singapore), La.Lit Vol. 1 (La.Lit, Nepal), What the Ink?
