These twelve short stories dive deeply into the imaginary worlds of Afghan women, where everyday life is marked and marred by war. They speak of wounded love, capture, confinement, talismans, borders, and wolves. Contributing authors include Wasima Badghisi, Batool Haidari, Alia Ataee, Sedighe Kazemi, Khaleda Khorsand, Masouma Kawsari, Mariam Mahboob, Toorpekai Qayum, Manizha Bakhtari, Homeira Qaderi, Parween Pazhwak, and Homayra Rafat.

Born in Qom (Iran), Mahmoud Chokrollahi is the author of novels, short stories and a short text, which constitute the same movement of his writing universe, between real and imaginary, plunging us into an unusual but familiar world . He divides his time between image and writing.

Elaine Kennedy studied English literature, French language, and translation in North America and Europe. She has worked as a translator in the academic and cultural sectors. The 2014 3Macs carte blanche Prize co-winner and a 2019 Toronto Book Award finalist, she presently focuses on literary translation. She lives in Victoria, BC.

"When you finish Under a Kabul Sky, you're haunted by the spellbinding sound of the wounded voices of these Afghan women."
?Guillaume Richez, Les Imposteurs
