#Giveaway : The Scatter Here Is Too Great by Bilal Tanweer

bring to you a chance to win a copy of
The Scatter Here Is Too Great 
Bilal Tanweer

About the book:

A bomb explodes at a station in Karachi and events unfold. A poet harassed by people minutes before the blast. His son yearning for something he cannot have. There is loss, heartbreak and someone or the other, who wants something or the other. Bilals view of life is large and heartbreakingly real. Bilals words and plots are smooth sailing and sometimes leave the reader wanting more and yet do not give things closure. The reader has to think of it what could have happened and that is one of the best things a reader can ask for. A read not to be missed this year.  Description  The Scatter Here Is Too Great heralds a major new voice from Pakistan with a stunning debuta novel told in a rich variety of distinctive voices that converge at a single horrific event: a bomb blast at a station in the heart of the city.  Comrade Sukhansaz, an old communist poet, is harassed on a bus full of college students minutes before the blast. His son, a wealthy middle-aged businessman, yearns for his own estranged child. A young man, Sadeq, has a dead-end job snatching cars from people who have defaulted on their bank loans, while his girlfriend spins tales for her young brother to conceal her own heartbreak.
