This book is a collection of essays by international writer Bapsi Sidhwa gathered for the first time in one edition by Teresa Russo, with a foreword written by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Deepa Mehta. Landscapes of Writing: Collected Essays of Bapsi Sidhwa provides a writer's perspective on issues of South Asian literature, linguistics, poetry, and views of political events and globalization. In the first part of the book, Bapsi Sidhwa discusses her childhood, family life, and how she became a writer. There is also a revised essay detailing how her book Cracking India became a film by Deepa Mehta. The second part of the book focuses on her thoughts concerning war, terrorism, and how to achieve peace. This collection includes two letters, demonstrating her local and nationalistic perspectives to a larger view of an interconnected world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Bapsi Sidhwa is a national treasure!" -Fatima Bhutto, author of The Runaways
"Landscapes of Writing is a fascinating collection of essays that offers a plethora of information on Bapsi Sidhwa's life, fiction, and her viewpoint on various issues-literary, social, and political. It is not an exaggeration to say that the present book is a rich treatise on current issues-on minorities, patriarchy, and the condition of women in South Asia. This book is a welcome addition to the corpus of fast-growing scholarship on Bapsi Sidhwa and South Asian studies in general. It will be immensely useful to students, teachers, and scholars." -R.K. Dhawan, University of Delhi
