For the month of September, The Aleph Review is delighted to introduce our fourth guest-editor of the year: Karachi-based Taha Kehar, who has drawn upon the creative memoir as his literary genre of choice. His will be the first piece to be put up, followed by three others, as well as his choices from the archives of the print journal.
Taha Kehar is a novelist, journalist and literary critic. He is the author of Typically Tanya (HarperCollins India, 2018) and Of Rift and Rivalry (Palimpsest Publishers, 2014), and the co-editor of The Stained-Glass Window: Stories of the Pandemic from Pakistan. Kehar curates Tales from Karachi: City of Words, an Instagram e-anthology that publishes flash fiction from and about Karachi. In 2021, he compiled and edited the first print anthology of the initiative. His third novel, No Funeral for Nazia, will be published in 2023 by the UK-based Neem Tree Press.
