Praise For Curfewed Night: One Kashmiri Journalist's Frontline Account of Life, Love, and War in His Homeland…
"Describing the ruin of Kashmir, Curfewed Night doesn't only shock, it challenges our most cherished beliefs––in democracy, rule of law, and the power of individual conscience. Everyone should read it."
— Pankaj Mishra, author of Temptations of the West
"The story of Kashmir has never been told before so evocatively and profoundly. Peer writes with the skill of a novelist, the insight of a journalist and the evocative power of a poet."
— Ahmad Rashid, author of The Taliban and Descent
"A passionate and important book - a brave and brilliant report from a conflict the world has chosen to ignore."
— Salman Rushdie
Curfewed Night is the finest book I have read on the contemporary Kashmir conflict – literary, humane, clear-eyed and reliable. Basharat Peer has given voice, unforgettably, to a generation of Kashmiris who have never been heard in the United States, but who should be.
— Steve Coll, author of The Bin Ladens, Ghost Wars and On The Grand Trunk Road
