There she meets Teddy Butt, a trigger happy, ex-body builder and a part- time goon for the police. The two could not be further apart and thatâs why they fall in lovea Teddy with sudden violence, Alice in cautious hope. How will their unlikely romance end? In A Case of Exploding Mangoes, Mohammed Hanif tore into the corruption of the army and General Ziaas dictatorship; in this novel he draws a dark and compelling portrait of Pakistan today where killers fall in love and lovers are forced to make impossible choices.
