Book: Karachi, You're Killing Me!

Paperback: 272 pages

Publisher: Random House India (27 February 2014)

Author: Saba Imtiaz

About the Author: Saba Imtiaz is a freelance journalist in Pakistan. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, the Guardian and the Christian Science Monitor. She reports on religious movements, culture and politics in Pakistan.

Excerpts: “As the Pakistan Peoples Party has reminded us nearly every day since Benazir was killed, democracy is the best revenge. Kamran has put me on a rotating schedule of covering press conferences. Democracy has so far only given me insomnia, a raging stomach ache, and paranoia. I haven’t slept properly in three weeks. The elections are still a full two months away but every morning I wake up gasping for breath, scared the country has been taken over by politicians who find a foreign conspiracy in everything.”
