Being a desi chick i really should support her writing but after wasting 20 bucks on Kartography, i corfirmed to myself that she is truly is a terrible writer whom reminds of aunties sipping tea in the afternoon in gold plated cups on some high powered thief banker's lawn in K.D.A.....

And after she gave a speech at Karachi Grammar's kids concert i truly wanted to spit on her and her fake british accent.... I can do a better one and dance like a mad scotsman from the highlands too....

Mohsin Hamid is a fucking amazing writer... i raise my fist in solidarity to the bitchy protangonist!

Gotta love realist fiction...
