Something About Me and My Book:
The One Hundred, based on a true story, is a heartbreaking tale of a chance encounter between three runaway children, their resolve to survive on their own, and the communal bond they create to fight a common enemy.

One of the few Pakistani novels to be written in English, The One Hundred tells a profound story of friendship, family, and love against the background of a true event that has not been told in fiction before.

See what some of the reviewers are saying about The One Hundred:


"[This] is a promising novel with compelling characters stories. The author excels at depicting the daily hardship of life in Pakistan."

—Publishers Weekly


“Any novel that can teach me something is one that I fall for. Ahmad’s ability to so thoroughly describe the lives of the characters in The One Hundred makes for an incredible reading experience.”

—Windy City Reviews


“Zia Ahmad, as a storyteller, shows that kind of holy mercilessness that won’t let us trust love until we see what the world looks like when we deny it. The world he takes us to is suspenseful, comic, edgy, but then he manages those narrative qualities evoked vision like Dostoyevsky’s and Dickens’ starkly comic moral writers who managed to write wildly popular books that face directly into real evil and still teach hope and touch joy.”

— Donald Schell, All Saints Company, San Francisco CA
