A case of exploding mangoes by Mohammed Hanif( Book )
41 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,630 libraries worldwide
Ali Shigri, Pakistan Air Force pilot and Silent Drill Commander of Fury Squadron, is determined to understand what or who pushed his father to commit suicide--and to avenge his death. His father, one of Zia ul-Haq's colonels, may or may not have been involved in the conspiracies and coincidences leading to the mysterious 1988 plane crash that killed Pakistan's dictator General Zia ul-Haq. His search immerses him in a snarl of events: Americans in Pakistan, Soviets in Afghanistan, dollars in every hand
Our Lady of Alice Bhatti by Mohammed Hanif( Book )
30 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 1,137 libraries worldwide
The patients of the Sacred Heart Hospital for All Ailments are looking for a miracle, and Alice Bhatti is looking for a job. Alice is a candidate for the position of junior nurse, grade 4. It is only a few weeks since her release from Borstal. She has returned to her childhood home in the French Colony, where her father, recently retired from his position as chief janitor, continues as part-time healer, and full-time headache for the local church. It seems she has inherited some of his gift. With guidance from the working nurse's manual, and some tricks she picked up in prison, Alice brings succour to the thousands of patients littering the hospital's corridors and concrete courtyard. In the process she attracts the attention of a lovesick patient, Teddy Bunt, apprentice to the nefarious 'Gentleman Squad' of the Karachi police. They fall in love; Teddy with sudden violence, Alice with cautious optimism. Their love is unexpected, but the consequences are not. Alice soon finds that her new life is built on foundations as unstable as those of her home. A Catholic snubbed by other Catholics, who are in turn hated by everyone around them, she is also put at risk by her husband, who does two things that no member of the Gentlemen Squad has ever done - fall in love with a working girl, and allow a potentially dangerous suspect to get away. Can Teddy and Alice ever live in peace? Can two people make a life together without destroying the very thing that united them? It seems unlikely, but then Alice Bhatti is no ordinary nurse
A case of exploding mangoes by Mohammed Hanif( Sound Recording )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 289 libraries worldwide
What really caused a C120 aircraft carrying the Pakistani leader General Zia ul Huq to tumble out of the sky on August 17, 1988? Was it mechanical failure? Could it possibly have been the result of human error? Was it perhaps the CIA brass taking a risky gambit? Some have said it had something to do with an old blind woman's curse, or the moral of that ancient proverb about star-crossed lovers whose lost love brings down a jet. Surely it was not, of all things, a most unfortunate casuality of the mango season's bursting bounty

The patients of the Sacred Heart Hospital need a miracle. Alice Bhatti may be just what they're looking for. She's just been released from the Borstal Jail. She's the daughter of a part-time healer, and it seems she has inherited his gift. With a bit of improvisation, Alice begins to bring succor to the patients. But all is not miraculous. Alice is a Christian in an Islamic world, ensnared in the red tape of hospital bureaucracy, torn between her duty to her patients, her father and her husband

Eine Kiste explodierender Mangos Roman by Mohammed Hanif( Book )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in German and Undetermined and held by 44 libraries worldwide
Am 17. August 1988 explodiert wenige Minuten nach dem Start in Richtung Islamabad das Flugzeug des pakistanischen Präsidenten Zia ul-Haq. An Bord befinden sich neben dem Militärdiktator und treuesten Verbündeten der USA im Afghanistankrieg auch einige seiner ranghöchsten Generäle und der US-Botschafter Arnold Raphel. Bis heute ist es eine der großen offenen Fragen in der gewaltreichen Geschichte Pakistans, ob es sich bei dem mysteriösen Absturz um einen Unfall oder um ein Attentat handelte. Mohammed Hanif greift dieses Ereignis auf und entwickelt daraus einen Roman mit anarchischer Komik und schwarzem Humor. Hatte die CIA ihre Finger im Spiel? Waren es pakistanische Generäle, unglücklich über ihre bevorstehende Pensionierung? Geschah es wegen des Fluches einer blinden Frau? Oder durch ein Geschenk der All Pakistan Mango Farmers Cooperative? Auch könnte der Erzähler, der Luftwaffenkadett Ali Shigri, verantwortlich gewesen sein, der eigene Pläne verfolgt. Ebenso sein Freund Obaid, der jede Frage des Lebens mit einem Spritzer Eau de Toilette und einem Rilke-Zitat beantwortet und plötzlich verschwindet. Oder ist es am Ende doch Leutnant Bannon, der aus seinem Vietnamtrauma in Marihuanaträume fällt? "Eine Kiste explodierender Mangos" ist eine vielschichtige und brillant erzählte Satire über Männer, Macht und Militär, die vor dem historischen Hintergrund auch die Strukturen und Verstrickungen der gegenwärtigen globalen Politik aufdeckt
Alice Bhattis Himmelfahrt Roman by Mohammed Hanif( Book )
5 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in German and held by 18 libraries worldwide
Im Zentrum des Romans steht das Herz Jesu Krankenhaus in Karachi. Alice Bhatti, eine junge Christin, bekommt eine Stelle als Assistenzkrankenschwester. Einige Zeit zuvor aus der Besserungsanstalt entlassen und in das Haus ihres Vaters im Christenghetto French Colony zurückgekehrt, gelingt es ihr mit ihrem unerschrockenen, zupackenden Auftreten schon bald, im chaotischen Alltag des vollkommen überfüllten und desolaten Krankenhauses Fuss zu fassen. Unterstützung erhält sie von dem 17-jährigen Jungen Noor, der dort als Schreiber angestellt ist und Alice vergöttert, sowie von der anfangs harschen, unzugänglichen Oberschwester Hina Alvi. Teddy Butt, muslimischer Herkunft, Bodybuilder und Scherge der inoffiziellen Polizeieinheit Gentlemen-Korps, die auf brutaleWeise mit "Verdächtigen" umgeht, wird auf Alice aufmerksam. Er umgarnt sie, und die kämpferische Alice fühlt sich schliesslich von ihm angezogen. Sie verlieben sich; Teddy mit unvermittelter Heftigkeit, Alice mit vorsichtigem Optimismus, doch ihr neues, gemeinsames Leben steht auf wackligen Fundamenten ... Ein tragikomischer Roman über Fanatismus, Willkür und patriarchale Strukturen, aber auch über die zweite Chance, Selbstbehauptungswillen und Liebe. Mohammed Hanifs zutiefst menschlicher Zugang und der eindringliche und temporeiche Erzählstil bestätigen seinen Ruf als herausragende literarische Stimme Pakistans. Mohammed Hanif, geboren 1965 in Okara/Pakistan, war Pilot der pakistanischen Luftwaffe, bevor er eine Karriere als Journalist einschlug. Ende der neunziger Jahre übersiedelte er nach London. Er schrieb Theaterstücke und Drehbücher und seinen ersten Roman "Eine Kiste explodierender Mangos", der bereits kurz nach Erscheinen für den Man Booker Prize nominiert wurde. Im Herbst 2008 kehrte er mit seiner Familie nach Pakistan zurück und arbeitet dort als Korrespondent der BBC. Er lebt in Karachi
