Mueenudin pens love story

Pakistani-American writer Daniyal Mueenudin whose debut book has been shortlisted for numerous awards including the Pulitzer is now penning an urban love story again in the backdrop of Pakistan where he has set up base.

Set in the 1970s, the story is next on the list of the author who has given readers across the world a glimpse of life into rural Pakistan in his first book, In Other rooms, Other Wonders, a collection of short stories.

"I am now working on a love triangle based in the 70s in Pakistan," Mueenudin, who was in the capital recently for the Commonwealth Writers' Prize told PTI.

Having won the Asian round of the event, he however lost out in the finals to Australian Glenda Guest's Siddon Rock in the Best First Book prize category.
