Our latest Literature issue is bursting with the best at the Word. One of the most respected historian-writers tells us all he wanted to do was to play cricket. Veteran journalists and authors take us through their difficult affairs with The Truth. Young new voices weave refreshing fiction and an unlikely Bollywood actor kisses maturity. Plus, Pakistan boxes out orthodoxy and some good cinema lies in Waiting. Here are the reasons to reach out for Platform’s latest edition, now on stands.
