Hijab Imtiaz

Hijab Imtiaz was born into a family passionate about the arts and culture in early twentieth-century Hyderabad, a sophisticated, elegant city in India. Her oeuvre, which includes many full-length novels, is replete with references to mortality, nature, and deep philosophical themes. She also holds the distinction of being the first Muslim woman pilot on the subcontinent in the 1930s. Her collection Adab-e-Zareen, translated by writer Sascha Akhtar as The Belles-Lettres of Hijab Imtiaz, was published by Oxford University Press India in April 2020.
