As you might be aware, Fawzia Afzal-Khanís memoir Lahore with Love: Growing up with Girlfriends Pakistani Style, Syracuse UP, 2010, was canceled by the publisher for fear of a lawsuit after the book had already been published.
The April 2011 issue of Pakistaniaat: A Journal of Pakistan Studies will publish a special cluster of essays that deal with this important book, its themes, its representational and stylistic strategies, and, of course, the controversy surrounding its cancellation or any other theme of importance.
The book is now being published independently and will soon be available through Amazon.com. All essays, unless solicited directly from the authors, will go through a blind review process.
