Fireflies in the Mist is Hyder's capstoneto her astonishing River of Fire, which was hailed by The New York Review ofBooks as "magisterial with a technical resourcefulness rarely seen before inUrdu fiction." Fireflies follows the creation of modern day Bangladesh -- from Indian province, to Partition, to the emergence of statehood -- as told through theimpassioned voice of Deepali Sarkar and others around her who live throughthe turbulence. Hyder perceptively and majestically follows the trajectory ofSarkar's life -- from her secluded upbringing in Dhaka to becoming a socialistrebel and to her ultimate transformation as a diasporic Bengali cosmopolitan --in the way that many of yesterday's revolutionaries are slowly but surely ensnared within a net of class and luxury dangled in front of them
