Author Bio

Justine Hardy has been a journalist for twenty-one years, many of those spent covering the long conflict in the state of Kashmir in North India. She writes for The Financial Times, and freelances for The Times, various Condé Nast magazines such as Vanity Fair and Traveler, as well as other publications.

Publisher's Weekly

Hardy (The Wonder House) draws on her 12-year relationship with the Dar family to recount the story of modern-day Kashmir—part pastoral idyll, part war zone. Hardy writes, “There is no single casualty of war, no one noun that sums up what has been lost,” and she paints a moving portrait of the ravaged communities and landscape, weaving in analysis of how the political machinations of Pakistan and India have quelled or intensified the conflict. She contrasts the sleepy valley she encountered decades ago to the Dar family’s Kashmir, which has witnessed the 1989 uprisings and strikes, martial law, deadly “encounter killings,” mass migrations of Pandits (Kashmiri Hindus), increasing religious orthodoxy and the widespread disruption of education, health care, economic prosperity and family and social life. Hardy’s deep familiarity with the region—she has reported on the Kashmir conflict for close to 20 years—allows her to present complicated and conflicting points of view from reformed jihadists, Indian generals, Pandit refugees and various members of the Dar family. Her reporting is admirable and gilded by lyrical prose and evocative description. (June) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
