Pirani & Other Short Stories is an English translation of Jamal Abro's collection of short stories that were originally published in the Sindhi language. Abro is considered to be amongst the best writers in the Sindhi literary arena. The book comprises of sixteen short stories that capture the essence of the land and the people of rural Sindh. Pirani & Other Short Stories arrests the reader's interest with its diversity, specific characteristics, and penetrating depiction of Sindh's social order. These classic short stories are accompanied by an informative introduction exploring the background of the stories and appreciating the significance of the finer points of the plot and the rendition. The work also includes two enlightening profiles of the author. The translation remains faithful to the style and mode of the original Sindhi text and adds to the authenticity of the narrative. This book certainly fills a gap in the dearth of accessible Sindhi literature available to the English readership. 

'I don't know who made the distinction that poetry dances while prose walks. While reading Pirani, I felt that even prose can dance.' 
- Shaikh Ayaz 

'Jamal [Abro] was a legend in his lifetime. He will remain a legend. His writings are the vowels of contemporary Sindhi literature. His brilliant mastery of the short story writing is simple, moving, and long lasting. He opened up new and vast perspectives; writing classics that demand constant re-reading.' 
- Hamid Akhund
