Mulk 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 Anand's published collections, each of them illustrating a different mood 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 emotions. Straightforward, unpretentious and expertly crafted, these unforgettable vignettes of life in twentieth-century India are sure to haunt the reader long after the book has been put down.
‘Mr Anand is not a mere storyteller, he is a poet as well. There runs a fine poetic streak through his stories' —Alfred Perles in Life and Letters
