The eminent novelist and critic Mulk Raj Anand is one of the very few Indians to have known and talked extensively with members of the Bloomsbury group--people like E.M. Forster, T.S. Eliot, Aldous Huxley, Virginia and Leonard Woolf, Clive Bell, and others. This book's twenty chapters present his conversations with these literary luminaries. Charming, lively, and absorbing, the conservations provide informal insights into the lives and minds of these great writers, and will delight anyone interested in the literary culture of pre-war Britain.
