Shamsie, Kamila, 1973-
Booklist Description (PUT BLURBS FOR BOOKLISTS HERE): 

A novel set in Karachi, Pakistan.  When Aasmaani was a teenager, she idolized her feminist activist mother and her mother’s lover, Pakistan’s greatest poet.  Then the poet was beaten to death and her mother vanished soon after.  Fourteen year’s later her mother’s best friend starts giving her coded letters which seem to imply that the poet is still alive and her mother is communicating with him—or is someone trying to trick her?
