Hammad Rind | Crickhowell Literary Festival (In Person)

In Four Dervishes (Seren 2021) , Hammad Rind takes the dastan, an ornate form of oral history, and creates a social satire with elements of magic realism. Set in the near East, it is a journey to understanding through layers of storytelling. Dark family secrets are laid bare, crimes committed, unknown links between a father and a son revealed, and the cycle – the circularity – of life is confirmed. All because a power failure forces the narrator to confront his present circumstances. Hammad Rind was born in Punjab, Pakistan, and currently lives in Cardiff, Wales. His stories and articles have appeared in a number of UK and international magazines including The Madras Courier, James Joyce Broadsheet and Y Stamp. Tickets: £7.00.
