Biography

Fatima Bhutto was born in Kabul, Afghanistan in 1982. She is the author of Songs of Blood and Sword, published in 2010, which has been translated into French, Italian, and Hindi among others. Her book The Shadow of the Crescent Moon was published in 2013.

Fatima's work has appeared in various publications including The Caravan Magazine, The Guardian, The Financial Times, and The New Statesman.

She lives and writes in Karachi, Pakistan.

It’s clear that there is an ambitious literary mind at work in The Shadow of the Crescent Moon. This is no cookie-cutter thriller by a spoiled jet setter. [Bhutto’s] talent is evident, even exciting. If she has the requisite single-mindedness, she could well turn out to be one of Nabokov’s enchanters.
