About the Author

Anniqua lives in California with her husband and two sons. When she's not working as an educator in the community college system, she visits her family in Pakistan and England. The rest of the time, she reads, cooks, travels, and enjoys mystical music and poetry and does whatever it takes to keep her grounded and happy.


"A coming-of-age story that blends excellent prose with a downbeat plot." --Kirkus Reviews "In The Shrine of Sain Makhianwala [chapter], we are gifted a world that is vibrant and richly imagined. The narrative voice is tender and patient in its portrayal of how tradition touches modernity, how the ancients sway the imaginations of the young." --Shanthi Sekaran, judge for novels at the Mendocino's Writer's Conference "[Rana's] use of evocative metaphors creates a world that is simultaneously intense and bleak, reminiscent of the prose of Thomas Hardy and rural England. At the same time, Rana uses magical-realism as a technique to carry the reader into a world where the supernatural is a relevant to the lives of its inhabitants as the mundane events of a village. It is this combination of literary styles that creates a unique experience for the reader. This debut novel is a truly authentic depiction of the reality of rural Pakistan." --The Daily Times of Pakistan "Immersive and intense, Wild Boar in the Cane Field, a novel by Anniqua Rana, explores the resilience of one woman's spirit in the face of adversity." --NRI Pulse "Rana gives us a compelling and rare glimpse into the life of rural Pakistan in her novel Wild Boar in the Cane Field." -- Bapsi Sidhwa, internationally acclaimed and award-winning Pakistani novelist
