In 1971, the region then called “East Pakistan” fought a bloody liberation war with “West Pakistan” that led to creation of the independent nation of Bangladesh. Abu Zubair lived through that civil war, and he writes about it in his new novel, The Silent and the Lost. Zubair was recently awarded the US-Asia Business Forum’s Community Support Award for support of the community through historic writing.
Zubair read from his book at the 10th annual West Hollywood Book Fair.
It’s a first here on GR: a guerrilla reading about guerrillas.
