Birthplace: Karachi, Pakistan
Often called Pakistan's leading English-language novelist, Sidwa moved to the United States in 1983. Her novels, which include The Crow Eaters (1983), The Bride (1983) and Ice-Candy-Man (1989) (released as Cracking India in the U.S.), explore the partition of the Indian subcontinent in 1947 and the birth of Pakistan. Her fourth novel, An American Brat (1994), shifted its focus from Sidhwa's native Pakistan to an immigrant's experience in 1970s America.
