Time had not died.

It was still flowing like her blood.

Her mind had become what it had endured and more; for now, with the dust, she saw butterflies floating in her room – here, there, everywhere.

Infused with lyricism and the romantic aura of pre-colonial India, The Dance of Darkness is a story about a bewildered town with only women, girls and hijras. Raised as dancers and lovers, the girls Surma, Parveen, and Dilchasp traverse through their usual routines until the presence of one man triggers all that the town has ever wished for – love and freedom

Born in Peshawar (Pakistan), Shameen Raza has done her Masters in Gender and International Development from the University of Warwick. As a development practitioner, Shameen has worked on Violence Against Women and Girls to fighting Tuberculosis in Pakistan.

This is Shameen’s debut novel.
