Read full description of the books:



In the wilds of Northern Pakistan, where glaciers are born of mating ice, two young lovers shatter the tenuous peace of a nomadic community

Thinner than Skin is a riveting novel about identity and belonging. It's also a love story: between a young Pakistani man trying to make his way as photographer in America, and the daughter of a Pakistani father and German mother brought up in the US, who wants to return to a country she's never seen. Together they make the trip to Pakistan, where a chance meeting with a young nomad changes their lives, and the lives of those around them, forever. The novel is also a love letter to the wilds of Northern Pakistan, to glaciers, to the old Silk Road, and to the nomadic life of the indigenous people in the Northern territories, where China encroaches and Pakistanis, Uzbeks, Russians, Chinese, and Afghans all come together to trade.

Read information about the author

Ebook Thinner than Skin read Online! I was born in Lahore, Pakistan, and grew up mostly in Karachi, though my earliest years were nomadic – two years in the Philippines, two in Japan, and three in England. It was in England, at age 6, that I wrote my first complete story, for which I was gifted a copy of Oscar Wilde’s Complete Fairy Tales. I’ve never stopped writing since and have the book with me still. My novels are: THE STORY OF NOBLE ROT (2001); TRESPASSING (2003), shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and translated into 18 languages; THE GEOMETRY OF GOD (2009), voted one of Kirkus Reviews’ Best Books of 2009 and also translated worldwide; THINNER THAN SKIN (2012), nominated for the Man Asia Literary Prize and the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature. An excerpt of THINNER THAN SKIN, “Ice, Mating,” appeared in GRANTA: PAKISTAN (issue # 112).
