One writer, originally fromNorthern India, is known for his critical takes on contemporary societies. The other is a nomad between the cultures of his Pakistani homeland and his new home ofEngland. Both writers have an acute sense for the political realities of our time. Mishra and Aslam look critically at the paradoxes of Western politics, and toward a Europe that may have left its colonial aspirations behind—but, from the perspective of Asia, and in the times of the Ukraine crisis and the NSA scandal, still seems to be searching for its way.
