Language: EnglishPages: 280About The BookMulk Raj Anand (1905-2004) had one lament he often voiced to his friends and literary critics that his short stories were not paid enough attention. This volume brings together some of the best and most memorable stories from Anands published collections, each of them illustrating a different moon and tone. In his half- humorous and half-ironic way, Anand draws our attention to the plight of the marginalized, the poor and the illiterate, and penetrates their innermost feelings and emotion. Straightforward, unpretentious and expertly crafted, these unforgettable vignettes of life in twentieth-century India are sure to hunt then reader long after the book has been put down.

About the Author:
Mulk Raj Anand was born in Peshawar in 1905 and educated at the universities of Punjab and London. After earning his PhD in philosophy in 1929, Anand began writing for T.S. Eliot's magazine, the Criterion,as well as books on cooking and art. Recognition came with the publication of his first two novels, including his well- known trilogy - The Village (1939), Across the Black Waters ( 1940) and The Swaord and the Sickle ( 1942). By the time he returned to India in 1946 he was easily the best - known Indian writer abroad. Making Bombay his home and centre of activity, Anand threw himself headlong into the cultural and social life of India. He founded and edited the fine art magazine Marg, and has been the recipient of the Sahitya Akademi Award, several honorary doctorates and other distinctions.
