Muneeza Shamsie is a Pakistani writer and critic and lives in Karachi. She has served as regional chair (Eurasia) for the Commonwealth Writers Prize 2009-2011, is Bibliographic Representative (Pakistan) for the Journal of Commonwealth Literature and she guest edited the special Pakistan issue for The Journal of Postcolonial Writing. A frequent contributor to Dawn newspaper and Newsline magazine, she has edited two other pioneering anthologies of Pakistani English writing: A Dragonfly in the Sun and Leaving Home.
"In this anthology there is no shortage of illuminating moments, either cultural or literary. . . . The authors regularly include terms from their native languages, a hybrid form that reminds the reader that these women truly write in the borderlands. [And the World Changed], skillfully collected and assembled, admits us into that life between worlds." --The Bloomsbury Review "I could not put this book down! And the World Changed is a groundbreaking collection that has the potential to propel contemporary writing by Pakistani women to the center of postcolonial literary canons. . . . A book to savor, to think upon and share with everyone." --Chandra Talpade Mohanty, author of Feminism Without Borders, Decolonizing Theory, Practicing Solidarity "A pathbreaking anthology, a feast of women's writing which challenges stereotypes of Pakistani women since Partition. It is essential reading for anyone interested in this emerging literature." --Janet Wilson, Professor of English and Postcolonial Studies, The University of Northampton "Muneeza Shmasie's gem-like collection is once personal, autobiographical, and national. The stories suggest that the tiniest personal moments connect, directly or obliquely, to the traumas of national and political identity formation." --Zohreh Sullivan, Professor of English, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign "Of immense historic, political, and literary significance . . . these words will change us as they invent worlds we thought we knew." --Sunaina Maira, Associate Professor of Asian American Studies, University of California, Davis "[A] must for any world literature collection." --Midwest Book Review: Wisconsin Bookwatch "A welcome addition to the growing corpus of women's writing from the subcontinent. . . . Highly Recommended." --Choice Magazine (starred review)
