In Other Rooms Other Wonders By Daniyal Mueenuddin
This is one of the best set of short stories you have read. Well crafted and very readable. Pakistan is portrayed rather bleakly. The rich seem either corrupt, lazy or greedy. Inherited wealth seem to be either squandered or milked by sycophants. The poor are really poor. All people seem to be looking for a way to make easy money. There are a lot of traditions, meanness and small mindedness.
