منٹو کے صد سالہ جشنِ ولادت کے موقع پر اس بات کی شدت سے ضرورت ہے کہ ان کی تحریروں کا ایسا مجموعہ تیار کیا جائے جو اردو اور انگریزی دونوں زبانوں میں ہوتا کہ منٹو کے خیالات تک زیادہ لوگوں کو رسائی حاصل ہو سکے۔ اس مجموعے کو چار حصوں میں تقسیم کیا گیا ہے۔ پہلے حصے میں منٹو کی خود نوشت تحریریں ہیں، دوسرے میں شخصی خاکے، تیسرے میں منتخب افسانے اور چوتھے میں مضامین اور پہلہ بار عواام کے لیے منٹو، ان کے خاندان اور احباب کی غیر مطبوعہ تصاویر سامنے لائی جا رہی ہیں ۔ عائشہ جلال


"On the occasion of Saadat Hasan Manto's birth centenary, there is a pressing need to put the record straight by making his work accessible across the linguistic divide between Urdu and English that hinders a free flowing exchange of ideas within Pakistan. Consisting exclusively of Manto's writings, this limited edition commemorative volume is intended to be as much a visually pleasing experience as a reading one. Divided into four parts, it showcases Manto's autobiographical pieces; personality sketches, selected short stories and essays, and for the first time brings into the public domain several hitherto unpublished photographs of the author and his family and friends." - Ayesha Jalal

Published in 2012 on the occasion of Manto's centenary, this volume carries selected original Urdu writings of Manto, along with their English translations. Also included are essays on Manto by contemporary authors including Ayesha Jalal. A must have for fans of Saadat Hassan Manto.

Manto Centenary

What a wonderful, humanising read. We know Manto second-hand in light of other people's opinion and perceptions. But it's been a treat to read Manto through the lens of Manto, and what an enlightening introduction it has been.
