About Book

Mass Transit is Maniza Naqvi debut novel which was first published in 1998 by Oxford University Press Karachi, as their first new fiction English novel. The novel is set in Karachi, in the context of the political history of Pakistan and the city of Karachi post 1947. The city itself is the protagonist--loving, loved, hating, hated, betrayed, betraying. A planned, unplanned, organized chaos; a dislocation and disorientation and reorientation of people in a constant state of movement and mobility, and in search for belonging.
