Translation of the back cover:
"Since ancient times, love is a topic that continues to be discussed. Despite hatred, hunger, wars and poverty that plague the world in which we live today if human hearts have not been drained of their emotional attachments, it is, perhaps, due to love. Fortunately, the great writers and poets of all times still have not been able to exhaust all dimensions of love. And, therefore, the true colors and other factors related to love have not fully been explained.
"Love is the greatest secret
of the world. 'Muhabbet ke char novel' (Four Novels about Love)
is a compilation of four novels written by different writers
in different countries and in different time periods which have
been selected by Mr. Sattar Tahir and translated into the Urdu
language. These four novels are a true reflection of the eternal
secret phenomenon of the emotion of love."
