A Pair of Mustachios
Description

About the Book:

The volume is remarkable for the variety of its inspiration…. The virtues of a humorous appreciation of life's little ironies and a sympathetic understanding of its tragedies is conveyed with a truly poetic intensity.'

Manchester Guardian, U.K.

About the Author:

MULK RAJ ANAND, was born in December, 1905, in Peshawar (now in Pakistan), and education at the Universities of Punjab and London. He began his career by writing for T. S. Eliot's Criterion and went on to win international fame with his heart-warming portraits of the Indian landscape and its working class. Author of more than a dozen novels, of countless short stories and literary essays, he has honored with Sahitya Akademi Award, the prestigious Indian award for literary writing, in 1972. He has held the prestigious Tagore chair at the Punjab University.

REVIEW:

'Anand is a figure of towering humanity whose works guide as through the multitudinous complexity of India with more verve than any other prose writer of his time.'

Alistair Niven in The Hindu

'In Mulk Raj Anand we see a writer who has not lost touch with his people.'

Dr Radha Rao in Indian Review of Books.
