Pat Hill's In the Moon-Bazar & Short Pieces
Stories assembled by Mary Frances Dunham and graphic design by Katherine Dunham
Pat Hill was one of Mary Frances’ closest friends when they both lived in Dhaka in the 1960’s. Pat’s stories of her experiences living in Dhaka and abroad provide a witty alternative take on many of MFD’s same experiences. Anyone who has enjoyed MFD’s Dhaka memoirs, Some Weep, Some Laugh, should definitely read Pat’s “In the Moon-Bazar”.
Letter to Mary Frances Dunham
Pat wrote this letter to Mary Frances in July 1964, when Mary Frances was in New York preparing to give birth to Katherine. In the letter Pat describes the daily travails of running a household team of servants in Dacca at that time. She also captures the isolation expats often felt when they went back to their home ‘villages’ in the USA.
