Aroosa Masroor in Dawn:
Pakistani H. M. Naqvi’s debut novel, Home Boy, launched in the US in August 2009 has caught the attention of readers and critics in Pakistan and the US, with glowing reviews in The New York Times, The Huffington Post, and USA Today and a flurry of interviews and reviews in the Pakistani media. The novel is set in New York following the 9/11 attacks that changed the lives of Pakistani immigrants, but at the same time the author has shared experiences from his hometown Karachi, thus giving a voice to people of both metropolises. On the occasion of the official Pakistani launch of his novel at the Indus Valley School of Arts & Architecture in Karachi on March 5, Naqvi chats with Dawn.com
